Rest in an air-conditioned room-fatigue is a common symptom in clients with multiple sclerosis. lowering the body temperature by resting in an air-conditioned room may relieve fatigue; however, extreme cold should be avoided. a hot bath or shower can increase body temperature, producing fatigue. muscle relaxants, prescribed to reduce spasticity, can cause drowsiness and fatigue. planning for frequent rest periods and naps can relieve fatigue. other measures to reduce fatigue in the client with multiple sclerosis include treating depression, using occupational therapy to learn energy conservation techniques, and reducing spasticity.
