Managing a Relapse

When you experience an MS Relapse, also known as an exacerbation or flare, it’s because damage in the brain or spinal cord disrupts nerve signals. It may present new symptoms or the return of old symptoms. Like most things with MS, relapses are unpredictable and knowing what to do and who to talk to are important parts of managing your MS.

This webinar will go through how your medical team define a relapse, and the option we present to people to monitor and treat a relapse when it occurs.

  • Understanding a “Relapse” – and what isn’t a Relapse
  • To Treat or to Watch?
  • Management Strategies – Having a plan
