Health Tip: Managing Fatigue Associated With MS

(HealthDay News) -- Fatigue occurs in more than 80 percent of people with MS, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society says.

The society suggests including these approaches to managing fatigue:

  • Regulate your sleep, which might involve treating other MS symptoms that interfere with sleep (ie., spasticity, urinary problems).

  • Psychological interventions, such as stress management, relaxation training, membership in a support group or psychotherapy.

  • Heat management, including strategies to avoid overheating and to cool down.

  • Medications to combat fatigue.
