4. MS Patients Can Be Parents Too
Patients with multiple sclerosis are often concerned about the future, including the demands of having children. This can bring additional stress and even sadness to the relationship. However, “women and men with MS can be successful parents of happy, healthy children,” state the National MS Society. The best option is to seek a physician and discuss an eventual pregnancy. The organization also offers resources for patients to learn more about conception, pregnancy, delivery and breastfeeding, and the impact of childbearing on MS, as well as about parenting and discussing the disease with children.
According to a study, fatigue – the most commonly reported symptom in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) – is associated with disease comorbidities such as depression, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine, and anxiety.
