Putting together an MS emergency bag: What’s on your must-have list?

Posted February 9th, 2018 by

From managing incontinence to temperature changes and sudden muscle weakness, many people living with MS have items they can’t live without. Some PatientsLikeMe members have started carrying an emergency bag with all the essentials to deal with inconvenient MS curveballs. Check out their suggestions:

  • Instant ice packs
  • Mint gum (helps one member “cool down”)
  • Change of clothes/underwear
  • Wet wipes
  • Latex gloves
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Travel-sized air freshener
  • Towel and water resistant blanket
  • Disposable incontinence underwear
  • Foldable/packable shoes
  • Wet bags (like the ones meant for baby diapers)
  • Travel sized detergent/bleach
  • Fold-up emergency cane (like this one)
  • Advil/Tylenol or a dose of your prescribed muscle relaxer

If you had an MS emergency bag, what would be inside?
