Cold Weather and MS.. 

I can't believe it's December already!  Where has this year gone?  Time's flying by, that's for sure, but now that the winter season's upon us, there's another factor we have to deal with ......and that is the COLD!

And it's not all about Santa Claus, reindeer and pretty snowflakes, that's for sure........we're talking about frigid temperatures that are sure to hit some parts of the world during this winter season long before we see daffodils popping up out of the ground come springtime.

Many of us have increased MS symptoms as the temperatures drop below a certain point. And it seems like some of the worse symptoms are those connected with increased muscle spasticity, which includes the "MS hug." Some people also report feeling increased cognitive dysfunction in colder weather.'s what some people with MS had to say about colder weather and how it affects them....

  1. I don’t like either extreme, but I choose heat over cold. I can get fatigued with heat, but cold cramps up my muscles. A few times I have even dealt with aphasia. I was trying to pull it off in my head, but I knew that I was mumbling and no one could understand me.
  2. From my first symptoms 6 years ago, cold has been my arch-nemesis. Living in Canada it is something I face most of the year. For me cold means PAIN - instant and overwhelming pain. My legs spasm and I often have difficulty walking as a result. I also get an increase in banding sensation around my chest that can be very uncomfortable. My hands freeze up and are useless. On the flip side, heat can feel wonderful, it often eases the spasms and there for pain but it really just numbs things ­ I’ll take it! Numb is better than pain! In the summer I spend most of my late afternoons inside because it gets too warm and I become weak and tired. So I guess I am one of the “rare” cases of people that are more affected by the cold than the heat. Although I can’t do much of anything in either extreme cold is by far more difficult for me to handle.
  3. I thought I was the only one who was “opposite”! I live in Colorado and cold is WAY worse than heat for me. Heat seems to actually help me, even if I get a little more tired than normal if I get too hot. Cold makes all my muscles seize up, I can barely make my legs move and I lose the ability to control my arms. I hate winter!

Here are some TIPS that can help you deal with the cold temperatures.....

  • Keep your hands and feet warm. (wearing an extra pair of socks can work wonders)  Many people with MS also have Raynaud's syndrome. This is where the capillaries in the fingers and toes overreact in the cold. As a result, the area under the fingernails and toenails turns blue and can be very painful.
  • Soak up the sun! As much as you can stand being outside during the warmest part of a sunny winter day. This will also help your body produce vitamin D (Dr. Cartwright tells us to get plenty of Vitamin D and how important it is).....and...get a little exercise outside while you're at it.
  • Don't overdo the heat inside. Remember, extreme heat is not our friend, either.
  • Warm yourself from the inside. Try drinking a hot beverage to take the chill off and warm your core faster.

A little thought and planning ahead for winter activities could help you have better control over symptoms.
Send me your stories and tips about how you deal with the cold weather.....I'd love to hear what you have to say on this subject:
