In this section of MSAA’s MS Relapse Resource Center, you’ll find three vital tools to help assist you in understanding, managing, treating, and hopefully minimizing, any MS relapses you may experience.
The first tool uses acronym A.R.T. to help you: (1) understand the importance of Adhering to your disease-modifying therapy for MS; (2) Recognize when you are having a relapse; and (3) know what Treatment options are available for an MS relapse.
The second tool is a list of questions to ask your doctor. Included in this section are topics such as common symptoms of a relapse, when to call your doctor, recognizing a pseudoexacerbation, what to tell your doctor, and more.
The last tool is a link to MSAA’s brochure, “Understanding and Treating MS Relapses.” This provides a quick overview of the main details involved with recognizing and treating a relapse.
