Multiple Sclerosis and Fatigue

February, 2004

If you have multiple sclerosis, you may be experiencing disabling fatigue, which is a common symptom.

Harvard Medical School offers these fatigue-relieving tips:

Exercise regularly. This can improve your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and help you feel more awake.

During the warm months, exercise early in the morning or in the late evening, when it's coolest.

A low-fat diet rich in whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables will help keep your energy level up.

Don't be shy to ask for help when you need it.

Speak to your doctor about medication that may provide some relief.
