Feeling faint

I have suspected MS (progressive ) and although I can cope with the heat reasonably well I find standing for long periods very difficult I get hotter and hotter and start to feel very faint so far I have managed to find somewhere cool to sit down and recover . Is this something that could be related to MS

hi lilacbelle

unthoff’s phenomenon causes our symptoms to worsen.

this is temporary and stops when you cool down.

drink lots of cold water, carry a pocket fan, wear loose cotton clothes.

talk to your ms nurse about it.

you’re not alone, most of us suffer from this.
