I am really hoping that someone can relate to what I’m currently going through…this is my second Summer with MS and I am quickly learning that it is the toughest season for me as the heat affects me a lot plus it adds to my tiredness. I’ve gone through waves of total lethargy and feeling very fat, but then giving into comfort eating at times hasn’t helped! The last month I have been better and continue to go to the gym at least 3 times a week, as well as making a huge effort to each as many fresh food as I can. But one horrid little problem is my skin…I had the usual teen and twenties spots which I dealt with and even in my early thirties I got the odd nasty one. However, for the past 2-3 months I feel like I continuously have spots on my chin/around my mouth, be them small pimples or ‘‘planets’’ as I like to call them. I have tried every skin technique possible but nothing seems to work. So my mind goes to my MS and wonders if the Summer heat and tiredness may be causing or contributing to my bad skin…so I am hoping that someone will reply to this saying they have experienced something similar and could maybe please offer some successful solutions?
I’ll admit I have always been very particular about my skin (drives my boyfriend and family mad!) but this is all really starting to affect me in a very negative emotional way and at times, I don’t even want to go into work or go out with friends.
Thanks for reading and for any help
