@jagriti_keshav , discuss this with your MS Nurse and see if they can get your Doctor to prescribe Amantadine or Modafinil and see if they help at all.

I’ve been taking amantadine and it has definitely helped. I had bad fatigue for about four months but I seem to be coming out of the other side now and am only taking amantadine on bad days rather than every day.

Yep fatigue is the major symptom of ms. Write a diary and see what makes you tired – stress, exercise, food, lack of sleep etc. Then manage your day. I stop after lunch most days and relax/sleep for an hour I’m then recharged for my school run and dinner. There’s nothing wrong with going to bed early! Yoga really, really helps. Just putting my legs up the wall energises me. Try some free classes on or YouTube. If you need drugs, there’s always caffeine ☕️ (In moderation). Good luck x

Hi, MS fatigue is my biggest symptom too. It’s such a pain, but as Victoria says, a break after lunch is good – really helps me too. I try to lie down somewhere and am generally ok after about an hour to get going again. Must try the feet in the air bit Victoria. I have found yoga very helpful in general. Hope this helps.

Hi, I hate this MS symptom! My neurologist says ha can’t help and that I should relax more, but relaxing is the only thing I am doing for almost half a year (since my last relapse). I’m sorry I can’t give you any advice, but I just thought I could let you know that you are not alone in this.
