About 3 years ago, I wrote a blog entitled, Q. Does Humidity Make Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms Worse?
Based on over 100 comments, we all kind of concluded that the answer was "yes," high humidity does make one feel much more "MS-y," as symptoms that are usually just annoying becoming almost debilitating at times.
I just experienced this phenomenon again - while vacationing (again) in Santa Fe, we were lucky to experience several rain showers in July (the "monsoon season" that I had missed up until now). It was lovely to see rain in the desert and temperatures dropped several degrees. However, despite lower temperatures, the higher humidity (in the 80+ percentile, versus the usual 20 percent) made me much more aware of my MS.
I thought I would bring this up for discussion once more, as I am guessing that many of you are suffering from high summer humidity, despite your attempts to stay cool and avoid the heat outside.
What do you think about humidity and MS? How is this year treating you? Have you found a way to get relief? Share your tips in the comments section below.
