Hello everyone,

Winter is sneaking up on us and the warm coats have found their way to the coat rack.

Do you experience problems with the cold? Any symptoms that appear particularly during winter? Do you get more fatigued, have spasticity increase?.. And what do you do to limit it?

Feel free to share your stories and advice here.

All the best,

Marina

Cold weather and MS symptoms


Posted on

YES! I am really getting fatigued fast! And I am extremely sensitive to the cold. But I haven't found a way to control it yet.. I thought it might help if I dress warmer, but that doesn't change a thing! I drink tea all day, wear big sweaters, wollen socks and scarfs when inside, but I am still freezing! The other day when I was at work, I was freezing away, heating my hands with my tea cup and hiding behind my scarf.. I looked up and noticed my colleague - in short sleeves! What the?

Does anyone have this problem? It is totally new to me... Really uncomfortable freezing all the time!

Whishing you all a nice warm afternoon...

Oh yes it's time for ten minute timeouts and hugging warm radiators. I find extra layers, hot chocolate and Wellman boost help get through. I am normally a warm person but yeah I do find it impossible to keep my feet warm woolly socks just don't help but I'm afraid I don't have any good tips

I used to get what I thought were chilblains on the joints of my hands however upon further investigation it turned out to be joint flare ups caused by Seronegative Arthritis.
