As a physician and a patient living with Multiple Sclerosis, Dr. Susan Payrovi has a unique perspective on managing the condition. But even she dismissed her own initial symptoms, putting them down to exhaustion and tendonitis.
In this conversation, Dr. Payrovi recounts seeing four separate neurologists before a friend (who was a plastic surgeon) put a name to her symptoms. She also gives some great tips for keeping records of any unusual sensations.
Through the use of self-care and lifestyle habits, Dr. Payrovi says that MS has given her the gift of focusing on what is important to her.
Dr. Payrovi practices Integrative and Functional Medicine at Stanford’s Center for Integrative Medicine, and is the founder of TRUE Medicine, an online wellness program for multiple sclerosis.
