Do you or anyone in your life suffer from Multiple Sclerosis? I have a special friend living in Arizona who deals with Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms. Managing the symptoms can be very difficult but can greatly improve the quality of life. The fatigue, spasticity, weakness, pain, along with various other symptoms can be overwhelming.
One of the most disabling symptoms is fatigue. Living with chronic fatigue is tiring and the lack of energy affects the muscles making it difficult to feel rested. Neuromuscular fatigue is one of many types of fatigue an individual with MS experiences. Lassitude is a type of fatigue that in essence means an individual feels exhausted, slow to move, and lethargic. Acknowledging the different types of fatigue caused by the disease and the need for help and treatment involves learning how to deal with one of many symptoms experienced on a daily basis.
I have a deep sense of admiration for people dealing with MS. These patients must learn to use practical coping techniques so they can accept and manage changes and adjustments experienced within employment status, increased independence along with physical challenges and condition.
Clinical trials have shown that proper exercise can increase fitness and reduce fatigue. A Physical Therapist or a Physician can develop the proper Multiple Sclerosis Exercise. However, just like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue patients, exercising to the point of pain means fatigue and increased weakness! Patients must PACE themselves and follow the proper type, duration, frequency, and intensity as prescribed by a physsicical therapist or physician.
I hope and pray God continues to give anyone suffering from MS the patience and strength required to live with MS.
Praying and wishing everyone a fatigue and pain free day!
