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.
