How long does it take to get over an attack. My s/o has been having problems for 2 1/2 months now, and was told that it was possibly MS. I know you have to have 2 attacks spaced apart but was wondering how long one attack usually lasts? He is a 30 yr old male.
I don't believe that there is a set time it takes a MS patient to recover from an exacerbation. I've seen some people feel better after a week or so and others take 4-5 weeks and longer....and everything in between.
A lot depends on how severe the attack is, what area of the brain is being affected and possibly what kind of medication is being used to try and reduce the inflammation being caused by the attack.
This is but one more reason as to why MS can be so frustrating for its victims.
