hibernation and ms

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

hibernation and ms

It seems the colder and more wintery it gets here in NJ, the more time i spend horizontal. Walking w/definite limp of affected leg and tipping over on occasion. Makes me hesitant to go outside because of winter weather. More comfortable horizontal and taking naps. Hot summer weather knocked me out too. Is this normal for ms? Is it forever? I was diagnosed definitely in July, so still a little new at it. On copaxone and zocor (staten). Linda

Hi.

Fatigue is very common with MS. Heat seems to make it worse and relapses also seem to bring fatigue on for me.

I have been feeling great for about 6 months and have been feeling so good (and active) that I actually lost 8 lbs. For me it comes and goes with my relapses.

Is it like that for everyone else?

Gary is bothered by heat some now, after 25+ years. Winter cold bothered him in the earlier years with stiffness. Seemed worse in cold. He also was less tolarent to cold temps. At 70 degrees outside, he still needed to wear flannel shirts to stay warm. Then he had an attack, went in the hospital and had massive doses of anitbiotics. He has not had the "cold" problem since.
