Re: does the ms hug need steroid treatment

Steroids will do nothing for the MS hug, its simply a symtom of MS and can hit at any time...it should come and go and not stay very long; however it is something you want to talk to your Neuro about..its a new symtom for you. Maybe its time to have another MRI and make sure your disease isnt progressing?
good luck to you.

Re: does the ms hug need steroid treatment

MS Hugs are only a pain. I like to think it is just your MS letting you know it cares. Happy Valentine's Day!

I was diagnosed in 1982 and I have had MS at least since I was 14 (1977). I have been Med-Free and I have reached a point in my life that MS Hugs, though they can be painful, are able to be passed over. Each time the MS Hugs get easier and easier ignore.
