What is new in symptom management?
Int MS J 2007; 14(1):22-7IM

Abstract

Many people with MS suffer from severe and disabling symptoms that restrict their social and private lives, and hence affect their quality of life; it is, therefore, essential that any symptoms that they experience are reduced effectively. Symptomatic treatment should also aim to prevent secondary complications that may result from existing disabilities. Since many MS patients are unaware that some of their complaints may be attributable to MS, e.g. fatigue, sexual dysfunction, pain or dysphagia, all patients should be thoroughly questioned about all healthcare issues and the results must be documented. In recent months, several studies about the treatment of important MS symptoms--like spasticity, pain, fatigue, bladder and sexual dysfunction, depression and cognitive impairment--have been published; this article will briefly summarize and discuss some of these treatments.
