- Persons with MS often experience an increase in symptoms of
fatigue or weakness when exposed to high temperatures, due to weather,
exercise, or fever. To manage heat intolerance, outside activities should be
timed for early morning or evening hours to avoid the heat of the day.
- Activities should be spread throughout the course of the
day to avoid overheating.
- Air conditioning in homes and cars, cooling vests, light
colored clothes, and wide-brimmed hats can be used to manage heat
- Exposure to saunas, hot tubs, or even hot showers or baths
should be avoided.
