study overview

This clinical trial will see if self-hypnosis or mindfulness meditation can help decrease fatigue severity in people with multiple sclerosis (MS). Such findings could help increase treatment options for people with MS.

People with MS often have problems with fatigue that can interfere with other treatments. For some, fatigue is the most debilitating symptom of MS. Unfortunately, available treatments provide inadequate relief. Past research has found that training in self-hypnosis may reduce fatigue for people with MS. Other research showed mindfulness meditation can reduce fatigue in the general population.

We are no longer recruiting participants for this study.
