There is not currently a cure for MS, but there is medication and treatment available which can help to manage the condition and to relieve symptoms.

Drake has just marked the release of his eighth album For All the Dogs. However, the father of one has since said that he wants to take a step back from music for a while to focus on his own health.
Speaking on SiriusXM’s Sound 42 on Friday, Drake said: “I probably won’t make music for a bit. I’m going to be honest.
“I need to focus on my health first and foremost. And I’ll talk about that soon enough. Nothing crazy. But just, you know, I want people to be healthy in life.”
“I’ve been having the craziest problems for years with my stomach,” he said, adding, “I need to focus on my health and I need to get right.”
