I can no longer take a hot bath or shower as it will cause some of my symptoms to temporarily flare. I still cheat once in a while with a hot shower but I know it is too much when my foot starts to go numb. I have had it last up to a couple of hours but usually once I cool down it is fine again.

How is it now for you? Any change?

You kids are all alike!!!!  We tell you not to put beans in your ears and you all have to go right out and try it!!!  LOL, I can't believe it!  So you had to go and try some heat on your feet.  And WHAT HAPPENED?  Ah, they went numb?

STOP DOING THAT!

In the context of MS, the heat can cause complete block of the conducted verve signal and loss of feeling in the nerves with demyelination.  The feeling should return within a couple of hours of cooling off.

Reminds of the note on the blackboard:

KIDS!

  Don't make me come down there!

CD,

I GET THE SAME FEELING IN MY FEET AND HANDS.

WHEN I PUT MY HANDS IN HOT DISH WATER THEY GO NUMB EVERY TIME.

SORRY QUIX, GOTTA DO THE DISHES IN HOT WATER.

ITS ENOUGH TO DRIVE YA NUTS.

HANG IN THERE,THE SYMPTOMS ARE ONLY TEMPORARY,BUT IT DOES MAKE WALKING A BIT DIFFICULT FOR A WHILE.

QUIX,

I ONLY HAVE 2 LEFT AT HOME,CURRENTLY MY SON IS STAYING WITH HIS SISTER UNTIL THE HOUSE IS FINISHED.HE STAYS WITH ME ON THE WEEKENDS.

THE APARTMENT IS REALLY SMALL.

MY 13 YEAR OLD HELPS SHARE DISHES WHEN SHE'S NOT OUT WITH FRIENDS.

I WILL HAVE A DISH WASHER SOON.

MY DOGS ARE ALL TO WILLING(LOL) BUT THATS A LITTLE DISGUSTING

AND THE DARN MAID WON'T GET OUT OF THE CLOSET,SHE'S WITH THE BUTLER --HE-HE-HE-HE.

Gawsh,

They''re very efficient and leave them spotless, it  just takes a while cause their tongues are a little small...

If you're not happy with the job the dogs are doing on your plates, try a kitty.  The stratchy-tongue cycle does wonders for that baked-on grime.

ever occur to you people that it is a vascular problem. when you are hot the blood vessels constrict and when you are cooler they expand, no? Go back to your Neuro and tell them this is simple science now fix it or at the very least give an absolute reason, not an unproven theory, or any theory for that matter.
