Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms in MS. Understanding fatigue and learning to manage it can help support quality of life, and this booklet helps explore what can cause fatigue in those with MS. It also provides some useful information and strategies covering a number of aspects of fatigue including causes, sleep management, and keeping fit.
MS can have a significant impact not only on people diagnosed, but also on the lives of family members and friends of a person living with MS. In this, the third in this series of booklets, the content has been divided into a number of sections including uninvited guests, emotion and cognition, pregnancy and parenting, and children and MS.
In MS, physical symptoms are relatively straightforward to recognise. However, emotional changes can be hidden and often go unrecognised. In this fourth booklet, the reader can read about some of the more common changes seen and offers some helpful strategies on managing them.
Cognitive change in MS is a complex issue. People with MS want to understand what cognition is, why they are experiencing problems and how they can help themselves. This booklet can help to provide some strategies and answers to questions that some may find difficult to answer. The content is organised into a series of sections including attention, memory, and executive function.
