As an Australian, I am at a total loss to understand how you could be presuming what you experienced is related to the "hot sun"?
Unlike the community members in the US and other countries over the other side of the world, Australia is currently in 'winter'......we are still dealing with our colder temperatures even when the sun shines, we haven't even begun to experience our typical warmer spring temperatures yet!
You've acknowledged you've been experiencing these types of episodes since you were a very young child, these episodes you've been having for most of your life, actually predate by decades any clinical or test evidence that 'could of been' suggestive of a neurological condition like MS, MS Uhthoff's (Heat Intolerance) would be a highly unlikely explanation simply because of the way MS symptoms present and or MS typically develops.
From my perspective, it seems unreasonable for these episodes to have any connection to hot sun or heat from the weather, when we haven't even started the warmer/hotter seasons in Australia yet, I genuinely don't see how the MS Uhthoff's tips and tricks for reducing heat exposure would be of any real help in your situation.
The only thoughts I have are that bright sunlight can induce migraines (eg silent migraines), bright lights, loud sounds, unusual or strong smells etc can also be a triggers for various types of migraines. Migraine can actually cause what you've described happens to you all these years, and may be that is a more reasonable explanation for it's historical presentation too, you could try wearing 'polarised sunglasses' to see if reducing sun glare is of any help in minimising these types of episodes.
PS sorry but i'm currently unavailable, this is my first post in 10 days and i'm not sure when or if i'll be up to posting again
I dont care whether they are uthoffs or not ,i dont care what they are called, I post in this part of the forum cause i dont know where else to post.
When they give me an answer as to what's wrong with me i will post elsewhere.
I agree yesterday was not that hot if you were sitting still and not wandering about, but was awfully exhausted too after nerve study evp etc and a full day on various forms of public transport so who knows.
I like the sunglasses idea ty i dont wear sunglasses ..never heard of silent migraines but hey if it helps
