Some people call them flares, some people call them exacerbations, and some people call them MS attacks. But all those terms refer to the very same thing — an MS relapse. What does a relapse really mean in terms of disease progression? What's the difference between a relapse and a pseudo-relapse? How does pregnancy make you less likely to experience a relapse and then more likely to experience a relapse?
Dr. Michelle Cameron is joining me to answer these questions and to share some advice on how to best avoid an MS relapse. Dr. Cameron is a neurologist and physical therapist, and an associate professor in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University.
We're also sharing the details about this Thursday's Pathways to Wellness in MS program being presented by the National MS Society(it's free to register!).
We'll tell you about over $1 million dollars in new progressive MS research grants that were just awarded by the International Progressive MS Alliance.
If you're curious about how well-matched you and your DMT really are, we'll let you know how you can test-drive a new MS Disease-Modifying Therapy Comparison app.
And we're talking about the latest addition to at-home telehealth treatment when it comes to MS rehabilitation.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
