tDCS to Lower Neuropathic Pain and Fatigue in People With Multiple Sclerosis

tDCS to Lower Neuropathic Pain and Fatigue in People With Multiple Sclerosis

Publication date: Mar 11, 2019

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on neuropathic pain and fatigue in people with MS. The investigators will conduct tDCS or sham on 5 consecutive days. They will evaluate pain and fatigue with specific questionnaires and measure fatigability with an isokinetic device. The research question is whether tDCS can lessen neuropathic pain and increase fatigue resistance in people with MS. It is hypothesized, that less neuropathic pain and increased fatigue resistance after the tDCS sessions.
