8 Tips for Dealing With the Heat When You Have MS






















Many people living with MS find that their symptoms become more pronounced when they are subjected to heat. With summer arriving in most parts of the country, many people with the condition will soon experience a temporary worsening of symptoms. (The same can happen if the person takes a bath or shower that’s too hot.) According to verywell.com, the symptoms affected could include blurred vision, fatigue, tremors, numbness, cognitive abilities, and general weakness. Thankfully, the symptoms ease off when the weather cools down.

According to the National MS Society, there are ways that those living with MS can help relieve heat sensitivity, including:

  • Installing air conditioning (which may be tax deductible if recommended by your doctor)
  • Staying indoors in extreme hot weather
  • Wearing cooling products such as cooling vest, bandanas, and neck wraps
  • Drinking icy drinks or eating popsicles
  • Exercising in a cool swimming pool (under 85ºF)
  • Exercising outdoors in the early morning or late evening
  • Exercising indoors with fans or air conditioning
  • Taking a cool bath or shower
Some people may find that if heat becomes too much of a problem that moving to an area with a more suited climate is the only way to find relief.
