Here is My Question:
I work outside 4 hours a day. I am required to wear a mask at all times. When I am done I have a bad headache and I feel weak (my legs are like noodles). Does wearing the mask effect my MS?
Wearing a mask should have no effect on your MS. Check the air quality in your area using the AirNow app from the EPA (download from the app store). Poor air quality from high ozone or particles could be contributing. You should also contact your primary care physician about these symptoms
