Heat

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

Heat

Postby Largelumpyhead » Mon May 21, 2012 9:38 am

I seem to have the opposite of an aversion to heat. Rather, I get these random cold feelings that rush over me and my wife will find me shivering next to the floor heater. Mind you it's late May in south MS, I shouldn't be cold like that. She finds me sitting too close to the heater all the time now and it doesn't seem to make symptoms worse, rather make them feel better. I truly crave heat at times but it's not constant and I haven't been able to establish any patterns as to what brings it on. For that reason I've felt it's not a circulation issue but who knows. Any feedback is welcomed

i was always hot...way before ms...maybe why i was attracted to snow skiing. anyway, now randomly i find myself cold or chilled when my wife is not. that is a complete reversal of the past 20 yrs.

and yes, what numbness23 said.

Have you asked your physician to test your thyroid hormones (TSH, free T4, free T3, reverse T3, and antithyroid antibodies)? Feeling cold all the time can be a symptom of hypothyroidism (deficiency in the thyroid gland).

agree re thyroid issues, and the top nutrients to support thyroid function also all happen to be the same old gang of usual suspects you see in ms patients (although i've not yet really read or gotten into detail re ms links to low iodine) nonetheless if you could be low in any of these nutrients, it might be worth a little bloodwork

my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
