HUMIDITY

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

HUMIDITY

Postby BUCK » Sun Feb 14, 2010 10:47 pm

I can't find another thread on here about the effects of humidity on MS. What I'm after is what is the optimum range for your house to be? I heard around 50% but I cannot confirm this. Also if too much humidity is bad then how is it that the rates of MS are higher in colder countries?

I monitored my symptoms and relative humidity. The results are detailed here:

I now live in a much less humid place (for some reason my old flat, though only a couple of miles away, was everso humid) and I don't notice the humidity so much now. A really humid day is still a bad day though..

This is known as 'cross posting' I believe..

L - It's good to see you here again. I have been trying for a while to learn more about Russell Johnson and the humdity angle, but it's just very very hard to find stuff on it.

I also wondered is the body has an interal humdity that fluctuates? I wondered how this might be measured. Ken

Hello hello

I was actually ElMarino for a while. I was getting some odd PMs from who I thought could have been a health care professional that I know.. I dknow I sound completely paranoid but, seriously, that's what I think could have been happening! So I changed identity for a bit before becoming sick of the name 'ElMarino'.

Russell and I exchange occasional emails. He has long retired and I don't think that he is persuing this research any longer. I have a couple of emails with other papers that he wrote that aren't available online if you'd like to PM me an email address. I think I have, I'll look them out though.
