Although the idea that pain is not a symptom of Multiple sclerosis (MS) continues, many studies have confirmed that over half of MS patients complain of pain. Different mechanisms are associated with causation of pain in MS. Most of the conditions causing pain can be prevented, eliminated or improved, and the remaining patients with chronic pain are managed with strategies that are useful in approaching chronic pain in other situations. Pain management requires a multidisciplinary team approach. Nurses play an important role in this team. Nurses should be aware of the type of pain and treatment options specific to MS patients and should provide the care. The aim of this article is to discuss the nature, causes, treatment and nursing care of the pain in MS disease in accordance with the current literature and to contribute to the relevant literature.
