Answer

Some patients have fluctuating symptoms and signs, and these are often position related. Because of this, bed rest is advised until the symptoms have stabilized. In some patients, the severity of the deficits is such that free ambulation is not possible; however, patients should be mobilized out of bed and be actively involved with physical and occupational therapy.
