    Dear murse1975,

    Fatigue is one of the most common MS symptoms. Most of us manage it by resting frequently and using time management techniques. There are medications to treat it, too, but these tend to be less successful and differ from patient to patient. Your partner should report this new symptom to her/his neurologist and discuss treatment options.

    To read more about fatigue and its causes, see the WebMD link below:

    Thank you Kim

    We went to the neurologist and he said basically just rest and that there was no medication for the fatigue. The good news is, the AMPYRA seems to be working and he's walking better. Not out of the woods yet but we shall see. Thanks so much. We'll keep you up dated.
