Managing your relapses (booklet)

Most people with MS are diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS, where symptoms arrive unexpectedly (a relapse) and are followed by periods of improvement (remission). For nearly everyone with MS, this is how their MS begins.

Download this booklet for information on:

  • what a relapse is and what causes them
  • why do relapses happen and can you avoid them
  • treatments and therapies during a relapse and in remission
  • preparing for a relapse
  • useful organisations

This booklet is available for you to download and print, or you can order a copy from our online shop. There's also more information on our webpages about managing relapses.
