An imediate family member has had MS for 40 years now, recently they have had a deteriation which due to its sudden nature is scary for me to witness. They can no longer stand up and is wheelchair bound due to the difficulty in even getting out to the car or sleeping in a proper bed. It is causing them pain just sitting in their wheelchair and they have lost a lot of weight.
Their legs are spasming/locking with cramp due to sitting still etc.
This person is quite stubborn when asking for help and researching what help there is out there, I know a doctor has visited and they are being treated with pills.
Id like to know if there are any tips to relieve these symptoms?
Is there hope that this is just a bad spell? (its lasted a couple of months now)
And what help/treatment is out there to help MS? Any help in this would be appreciated
