Is this an MS Symptom

Postby patmcgown » Thu Jun 25, 2009 6:32 pm

I have had this symptom for about ten years but was only dxed with ms 5 years ago. Baasically when I drink or eat something cold I get horrific cramps that cause me to double over, sweat, and sometimes vomit within 10 minutes. Drinking a warm liquid will stop the pain in about 15 min. Is this something that could be caused by MS or is it something else I should get checked out thanks.

MS can bring individual symptoms that may not match others...I prefer cooler meals which i like...which keep my body temps lower... I have a real aversion to heat...when i drink warm liquids it is for the caffeine

Ms is such a finicacky thing...it keeps us all guessing.

It could be related to MS. However, it's probably best to check with your doctor before assuming that it is. Too often, we as MS patients tend to think that every physical anomaly is related to MS. However, such a viewpoint could potentially overlook a treatable medical condition that may have nothing to do with MS.

It might not be what's ailing you but your post rings a bell with me - Ask your doctor to check your bloods for anti-gliaden antibodies - the test for coeliac disease (celiac sprue or gluten intolerance).

I have both MS and Coeliac disease.
Hope you find out exactly what's wrong and feel better soon.
