Losing too much sleep and wondering what you can do about it? A good night’s sleep is worth working for and consistent sleep problems can make living with MS more challenging. In this teleconference, you’ll learn about common sleep disorders for those with MS and begin to understand the impact that sleep has on quality of life and inflammation. You’ll also learn more about both natural aids and pharmaceutical options to improve sleep.

While the challenges may at times feel overwhelming, many couples have found successful and satisfying ways to deal with the intrusion of MS in their lives. In fact, confronting the challenges of MS draws many partners closer together, deepening their sense of connectedness and commitment. In this teleconference, participants will learn more about some of the barriers that MS can create for couples and hear helpful pointers on how to work around them. By the end of this call we hope that participants understand the neurologic and psychological impact of multiple sclerosis on sex and intimacy, learn what can be done to improve intimacy with multiple sclerosis and understand possible implications of multiple sclerosis on family planning.
