Cooler Temperatures and MS Symptoms

Do you notice with cooler or cold temperatures, your MS symptoms seem to worsen? If so, how do they worsen?

Do you feel them more frequently, more intensely?

Are there symptoms you feel only in the colder weather that you don't notice in the warmer weather?

Share you experience below in the comments.

    1. Colder temperatures make my skin feel like it is burning. I have challenges with heat but nothing like managing through cooler temperatures. It is a physically painful experience.

      1. My neuro has me on lamotrigine 200mg/twice daily with Lyrica 150mg/three times daily. It’s kept my pain at bay but I’m still scared of a cold breeze hitting my face.

      2. ,
        I'm glad to hear your current treatment plan is making a difference for you.
        I hope and pray the weather will be kind to you.
