About 50% of people with MS will experience some MS related pain during the course of the disease and it can take several forms.
Pain in MS can be managed, but it requires careful identification of the type of pain, and persistence in determining the best medication and/or dosage. It frequently requires multidisciplinary input and, if severe, may benefit from the expertise of a pain clinic.
