Description

This research study is designed to assess whether physiologic dysfunction contributes to fatigue in people with MS. This connection will help guide routine neurological treatment fatigue in MS in the future.  Physiologic testing includes measurement of a person’s pupil function, blood flow, heart rate and blood pressure during changes in position and breathing. Clinical testing includes a neurological exam, history and physiologic tests to fully characterize an individual’s physiologic function related to MS and fatigue symptoms.

Individuals age 18 and older previously diagnosed with multiple sclerosis are welcome. Volunteers must also meet the following criteria:
  •          No personal history of Diabetes or Coronary Artery Disease
  •          Not currently taking the following medications: Tamsulosin, antihypertensives, muscle relaxants, and Wellbutrin.
