MS symptoms can often impact our appetite. Between dizziness, loss of balance, and nausea, eating can be the furthest thing from our minds.

Know What You Can Stomach

Figure out at least one type of food you can handle when your appetite has decreased, and try to stick with it. Don’t totally avoid eating — this could lead to dangerous complications.

Try Exercise

Light exercise, like yoga or walking, may actually stimulate your appetite.
