I have multiple sclerosis. It seems that as the temperatures warm up my symptoms get worse. Am I having another exacerbation?

An exacerbation is defined as new symptoms developing or old symptoms getting worse for more than 24 hours. If this is the case, you need to contact your doctor. It also could be that you are heat sensitive, meaning that as your body temperature increases, your M.S. symptoms (fatigue, vision, weakness) will worsen until you cool your body down. There are many homemade cooling devices, as well as commercial cooling vests to be worn outdoors, that are of great benefit year round to help manage your symptoms. For additional information please call Greg Farmer at STARS at 367-8989.
