Hot Summer Temperatures and Multiple Sclerosis
The National MS Society has an interesting little webpage about Heat & Temperature Sensitivity that says historically physicians used “The Hot Bath Test” to help diagnose multiple sclerosis.
People were submerged in a hot bath and if they developed neurological symptoms or if symptoms they had already been having worsened it was determined that they had MS. Sounds a lot cheaper than an MRI!
I am curious how the heat affects other people with MS and how they cope. Please tell!
