Do MS Patients, truly have less symptoms, in the cooler and colder months?

Why is there, the false premise, that MS Patients have less symptoms, in the cooler and colder months?

I, for one, suffer many symptoms, in the cooler and colder months, in fact, when I was Dx'd, back in 2009, my Neurologist suggested, that I do NOT leave my home, except for necessaries, like Doctor's Appointments.  The Cold Temperatures present, just as many difficulties, as the Hot Temperatures, at least, for me.

Hey Denis long time no hear :D great to see a familiar face , unfortunately we are soooooo inactive these days it's likely you'll not have anybody else respond :{

I think 'cold' is known and discussed more by the uk MS societies but cold has hardly had any specific researched done on it compared to the effects of 'heat' it's definitely not as common as heat is. The false premise probably has something to do with the old hot bath diagnostic test they use to do too...

Nice to see you here......JJ
