Question MS Symptoms Questions?

Can anyone here help me with a few questions? Do MS symptoms affect you differently at different times of the year? Can you have some symptoms like in the summertime & then some are in the winter? Or do they not discriminate? Reason i'm asking is mostly during the summer months, i have symptoms such as this: my legs swell & are very painfull from my hips to my toes, I get leg cramps in the middle of the night, sometimes when my legs are bothering me i get a buzzing sensation in them like they're vibrating. In general they feel very heavy, especially after work. Also, i have really bad migraines, worse during the summer months. And, sometimes during the day or whenever i'll get real lightheaded & dizzy for no reason. And when i try to walk i kinda fall to one side, almost like i'm drunk. Lately, i've had problems with my neck, tightness, choking sensation, swollen glands. I went to the Dr. & he put me on antibiotics, took blood & urine sample & i'm waiting to hear from that now. Also, at the very top of my spine in the back, i have a numb spot, & when i move my head fowards or backwards it pops & cracks & is very tight. I'm 38 y/o male, & i feel like i'm falling apart, i'm not a drinker or drug abuser, but i do smoke. Any input would be appreciated! Sage

Re: MS Symptoms Questions?

Hi Sage,

I think you hit upon one of the most common manifestations of MS, its UNPREDICTABILITY!
Some days you feel almost normal; other days you feel like sh...
No question heat (for me at least) adversely affects MS symptoms. But it seems there is a lot more to it than that.

Hello Sage

MS symptoms are exacerbated by the heat. If I get overheated, I become quite ill and can hardly walk. Try to stay cool.

Hi sage,
I think alot of folks get exhausted due to heat ms or not.I can only speak for myself,I get so fatiqued in the humid summer and pass out,even if in winter I get hot from working or exercise,etc...If you are concerned with your symptoms by all means get checked out,you will find out alot of ms'rs have had it for years before dx'd.Wish you well,Dessell
