Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms of MS. It can get in the way of fully engaging in life, making fatigue one of the most bothersome symptoms of MS. And because MS fatigue is one of the main causes of early withdrawal from the workforce, fatigue is an MS symptom that can impose a hefty financial penalty on a household.
Joining me to talk about managing and even reducing MS fatigue is Dr. Elizabeth Gromisch, a neuropsychologist at the Mandell Center for Multiple Sclerosis in Hartford, Connecticut.
We'll also share the results of a UCSF study that show how artificial intelligence may be able to predict MS in an individual years before they experience any typical MS symptoms.
We'll tell you about two different experimental treatments for progressive MS that are showing some early promise.
We'll give you the details of how you can join a virtual support group with a focus on using positive psychology for people living with MS.
And we'll give you a reminder that MS Got Talent is being live-streamed this Saturday….and Jon's performing magic!
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
