Just back from session 2 which covered Fatigue Management and Reflexology. The former was very good but basically boils down to pacing yourself which is so easy to say but sooooooo difficult to do. Fear of being considered to be lazy is very guilt inducing.
The reflexology was interesting, is obviously foot massage where symptoms can be aided by pressure to certain areas of the foot, but most interesting they’ve had a lot of success easing constipation in MS patients and some, with regular treatments actually become quite regular. That sounds sad to many I’m sure, but if it’s ever been a problem let me warn you, it’s not a nice one.
I also learnt that if I register with the MS Society I can attend their regular sessions with access to reflexology, physiotherapy and hydrotherapy. All for the princely sum of £5 a year. I think I know where my next investment’s going.
