One of the realities of living with MS is that you're often dealing with invisible symptoms. And because symptoms like numbness and tingling, fatigue, depression, vision issues, and pain aren't apparent to others, it can be hard for people around you to understand what MS is all about and, specifically, what you might be struggling with.
Kathy Costello returns to the podcast to discuss how to best manage the invisible symptoms of MS and how you can constructively shut down those conversations that begin with, “But you look so healthy!“.
We're also sharing the results of a study that focused on the results of 50 different studies about the effects of autologous hematopoietic stem cell therapy (aHSCT) on people with MS.
We'll tell you about the National MS Society's $19 million dollar investment in 40 new MS research projects.
It's August, so we have to talk about Burgers to Beat MS!
And we'll give you the details about how you can participate in testing a new product that combines technology and music to improve gait problems for people living with MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
