Have any of you noticed that your symptoms are exacerbated by extreme hot/cold temperatures?
The last couple of years that I lived in Michigan, I had terrible Raynaud's syndrome in the winter, in my feet (toes would be extremely painful, turning red then white, due to limited blood circulation). This was about 3 years after my first AMN symptoms started (but years before being diagnosed). I've been in Oregon for the past 5 years now. MUCH milder winters, and I haven't had any of the Raynaud's issues since. We're toying with the idea of moving back to Michigan, and I'm worried those issues would return if we move back. And not sure if the Raynaud's is connected to the AMN, or just something separate and random.
And then also curious about issues others may be having with extreme heat. It is common for people with MS to have exacerbated symptoms in hot weather, and I'm wondering if it makes sense that we with AMN would as well. I do think my symptoms get worse in extreme heat, but kind of wonder if it's all in my head, and just because I'm more fatigued, since hot weather makes everyone feel fatigued!
Just curious what others think on the temperature topic. Thanks!
