What are some exercises for the brain with multiple sclerosis (MS)?

ANSWER

If test results show that multiple sclerosis (MS) is to blame for spotty memory or poor mental focus, you may want to try rehab to sharpen your thinking. It can include:

  • Memory exercises on a computer
  • Home or work strategies with notebooks, organizers, or filing systems to help you remember things It’s possible, but rare, that thinking problems become so severe that someone with MS needs constant care or can't live on his or her own. If this becomes an issue, discuss your options with your doctor and family. A social worker or psychologist also can help explore options for care.
