Exercise is not just good for your health, it's an important part of MS treatment. Being active gives you more energy and makes you less tired. It helps prevent bladder and bowel problems, and it can boost your mood.
IVIG can also lengthen the time before a second attack in people who take it after the first attack.1
But IVIG is extremely expensive, not widely available, and not

Talk to your doctor if you are planning a pregnancy, if you are pregnant, or if
you are breast-feeding.
