I read something recently that made me think about this.
I've read that certain things can exacerbate symptoms or cause a flare-up.
Things such as: heat, hot baths/showers, hot/humid weather, excessive exercise, stress, being over-worked etc.
We know smoking is not good for MS (or anything really).
We read that a poor diet is not good for MS either, especially things like gluten, bla,bla, bla.
If all these things can cause th return of symptoms can they also cause a relapse?
If you smoked 60 fags a day, ate fry-ups all day long and did some extreme exercise, could you then induce a relapse? ...Or is does it not work like that?
Is it more the case that you can make things worse by doing the things that can cause another attack but not actually inducing a new attack/relapse?
Obviously no one wants to cause a relapse on purpose and try to do things to minimise relapses.
Hmmm, I should just go to bed and stop thinking!
