Hi Kate. Thanks for your input. I REALLY appreciate it. I have been wondering lately if I have progressed to MS. Something to think about. Not sure if this is any help, but I cannot tolerate the heat at all. It brings on all my symptoms such as super dilated veins, SOB, tachycardia, weakness, etc. When I “burn up”, I do not sweat at all, and the only relief is to whip off all my clothes. However, I do have the ability to sweat (like in a really hot tub for example). I am wondering what all of your symptoms are? Maybe I have some of them too.

Boy, can I relate…’whipping off clothes’ to get cooler…LOL!! hold Ice Bag to wrists,etc.
I kept a Journal-type account of SOME my symptoms of ‘MS’ Just few days before my Angioplasty
LIST of my Improvements / Symptoms (Sx) lie within …
–cog fog diminished: feel more awake, more lucid dreams, better quality of sleep
— improved bladder: only need to void twice at night…go straight to sleep , voiding seems ‘more efficient’-streams, not ‘squirts’
–minimal Left ankle swelling, better color too.
— voice is stronger- my ‘Old Laugh’ has returned:stronger,heartier
–Balance is better- not dizzy in shower, can tolerate better…standing for 15 minutes
—get up out of desk chair more easily.
–no foot drag noted on tread mill, uneven pavement, flag stone walks ,etc.
— I have more Sx but don’t want to ‘wear out my welcome’ here…lol!!
–my first visual Symptom ever…when overheated: vision looks like viewing through a FOG / Steam Room
Because as far as I knew, I went from ‘normal’ to MS-labeled…not sure about progression.
Hope this helps! k.
Dr D: please feel free to ‘curb’ my Verbosity …no offense intended 🙂 !
