How do I recover after a multiple sclerosis flare-up?

ANSWER

  • You can recover fully after a relapse, but it might take weeks or months to get over all your symptoms. If you had a lot of nerve damage, some symptoms might not fully go away.

  • Speech
  • Dressing and personal care
  • Movement
  • Home chores
  • Problems with thinking and memory
