Welcome to the Virtual MS Center!
Ask any question you want about Multiple Sclerosis and one of our experts will answer it as soon as possible.
Prior to being diagnosed with MS, I always loved the summer and the sun. However, the impact of the heat is too much and I find myself never wanting to go outside in the summer. Why does the heat make my MS worse?
Read our page on heat sensitivity to learn about why heat impacts MS and what you can do to enjoy the summer. http://www.healthcarejourney.com/heat-sensitivity.html
Hope this helps.
