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

That sounds awful. Fair play to you for still getting to work despite those conditions.
When I worked in a very hot office I researched cooling garments. There were vests, hats, scarves etc. It's a long time ago because I just changed job, couldn't take the long hours and roasting office anymore, but maybe google 'cooling garments' and see what pops up.

do you have ac in the office? ask them to move you closer to it. I had that problem in my office where they wanted to keep the ac at 80 degrees and i couldnt handle that. they wanted to be dicks about the temp so i got a note from my neuro saying the temp at my desk needed to be between 60-70 degrees. by law they have to follow what the neuro says or they could get sued

I had one of the guys close everyones vents and leave mine open!!this would force the cool ari into my office. THe problem is that the Sun, which i have grown to hate, beats on the corner of the building and wheni ts only fifty or sixty outside the air is off. However the heat of the sun can bring my office, with blinds closed, to over 80! When it hits above 75 im dead. If it wasnt for the fact i have to feed a family of 6 i would be out of here so fast!!

Can you get a stand-up fan or desk fan to blow air on you? My daughter finds it helpful even if the air is not particularly cold.

Get reflective shades for windows. Cooling things for body, I would wear shorts and take shoes off everyday. You'd be amazed with how much heat those things Confine heat.
