Pain is a frequent problem for people who have
multiple sclerosis (MS). Medicines that may be used
to bring relief include:
Some forms of natural or man-made substances related to marijuana, called cannabinoids, may help relieve pain.
Pain that does not respond to these medicines can sometimes be
treated with an injection of long-acting anesthetic.
