MS AND 'HEAT AND FATIGUE'...

STEER CLEAR OF ‘HEAT AND FATIGUE’ MS ALWAYS WINS!

Went on Holiday to Lanzarote - there is a ‘breeze’ there but it is warm but the breeze does help - have been there 9 times and it seems to work! (have had MS for almost 14 years)

Hello Marcus1,

MS sufferers are bad at controlling their body temperature. If you get too hot conduction of signals down the nerve grinds to a halt, very difficulkt to move. I suggest a cool shower, works a rteat for me.

Also you will suddenly get cold when it is chilly and difficult to warm up.

Everyone is different, one of the exciting things about MS!

Take a look at my website www.aid4disabled.com. There are one or two articles about getting too hot.

Good luck,

Patrick
