Intolerance To Cold Weather

Intolerance To Cold Weather

I live in Alabama where the weather is hot and cold. For the last few days the weather has been cold in the morning and evenings. I have so much pain- and I want to know if anyone else experience the same thing?

With MS I find that high humidity with rain makes me hurt. Wet and moist. When it's cold here in Alaska and very dry with sunny days and bluesky,, but low humidity ,that doesn't bother me. Even when it's like -10 degrees out and dry with low humidity that's not so bad at all. As far as pain goes. Now the heat bothers me no matter what!

Oh yes, Michigan is the land of all four seasons in a day. It’s tough on regular people let alone us MS’ers…. You’re not alone dear!

Yes cold weather can add pain too. To existing muscle spasms, numbness and tingling.

I have some heat intolerance but i am more so bothered by the cold. It is like my body is unable to regulate body temperature. I get so cold, tired, shiver it just impacts me horribly. I would rather be way too warm.

Yes high humidity cause problems for me same with the heat . When cold and rainy not so much . But i supposed it all depends on the Altitude were you live at . Your in Alabama, the other one is in Alaska and im in idaho .
When i lived in nc thats when i noticed something was changing in my body . I didnt realize it was ms .we moved back to idaho and things stated to slow down till 2017 .
