Patient Comments: Botox for MS - Treatment

Question:

Have you used Botox as part of your multiple sclerosis treatment? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: Richard, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: June 25

Through the Veterans Affairs my neurologist suggested Botox as a form of therapy for multiple sclerosis, to reduce spasticity in my lower extremities. The situation is such that I experience approximately 25 to 35 spasticity attacks daily. It affects most of my body but my legs down to my toes are mostly impacted to the point I almost slipped out of my wheelchair. The neurologist seems to think Botox injections may be the answer.
