Managing a relapse (booklet)

Publish date: 
Oct 2015

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 all people with MS, this is how their MS begins.

This booklet explains what a relapse is, and how relapses can be treated and managed. It also includes space at the back to record details if you have a relapse, and to note the key contacts who can help with your treatment.

This booklet is also available to order as an audio CD (see below).
