Being a neurological condition, multiple sclerosis affects your brain, which may lead to memory loss and concentration issues. Here’s what you can do to help:

•    There is a technique called cognitive rehabilitation. Your doctor can refer you to a specialist, such as an occupational therapist or neuropsychologist, who can explain more.
•    Fitness has been associated with positive results on cognitive tests for MS patients. Adding an exercise routine may help with memory and focus.
•    Certain tools can help you work around memory problems. For instance, keep a calendar, write notes, make lists, and use a smartphone for alerts/reminders.

Did you know that drinking problems among MS patients could be linked to anxiety and family history?

  1. The headline promised 3 tips to use when telling people you have MS. However the article then introduced many other factors about MS – plus lots of ads. I find this to be “a scam” that is not not at all honest and truly a waste of time. I would expect better from you.

      The actual title of the post is “26 Tips to Help Manage Common MS Symptoms”. Maybe you clicked on the wrong link?

        I also clicked on a link that talked about three symptoms… trying to scroll through on an I-phone I just kept having ads pop up … so gave up! You maybe need to consider the cognitive side of MS – multitasking and too many distractions don’t work well.

      how about saying to someone interested “I am a little slow, and clumsy, but you will see these problems do not define me!
