For those of you with CP, how does the cold wether affect your muscles and how you feel. We are experiencing unusually cold weather here in the Uk and my son is tired all the time. Not like him at all. His already high tone is also higher. Just wondering if the weather is part of the problem. He's not old enough to describe how he's feeling.
Also if anyone has any tips on managing this - that'd be great. We have him wear extra layers (vests and long johns) in this weather, but any other tips would be helpful.
Thanks x x
I just thought of another thing too. My son has had muscle spasms in the past where he would wake up frequently during the night. We found that magnesium helped, its available from the chemist in a powder form and you just add water. Magnesium is like a natural muscle relaxant, also very good for PMT!!
We found no side effects but talk to a naturopoath, most chemists have one on site to consult with. There was only adult dosages on the back of the powder container so we halved the dose and that seemed to work fine.
