Recent research suggests that loneliness is one more invisible symptom of MS. But social outreach and interaction have never been more accessible. My guest is Mary Pettigrew, an MS Warrior and social media phenom. In 2014, Mary launched MSPals, a Twitter group that has evolved into a community of more than 5,000 followers. We're talking with Mary about the benefits of connecting online and the importance of finding your creative outlet.
We're also talking about new research on the severity and impact of MS fatigue, along with a new smartphone app designed to improve MS fatigue. We'll tell you about a new way of treating spasticity, and we'll give you the details about a new study that's looking at TeleRehab. We'll even tell you how to sign up for the study!
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS?!
