Living with M.S.

"Living with M.S. is sort of like training for a long race. The harder you try, and the longer you keep at it, the stronger you become.
Eventually, looking back, you may be amazed at the power you possessed, even when you had no idea it was within your reach." (Linda Ann Nickerson)

Does MS wake you up with cold feet ... even when your home is warm?




Don’t mean to step on any toes here, but I gotta ask. Does MS wake you up with cold feet ... even when your home is warm?

Been there – for sure.

In fact, this is pretty much a daily thing for me lately. I’ve tried fuzzy socks, but they don’t seem to do the trick. And extra blankets only complicate the problem. Hey, we all know what the slightest rise in body temperature can do to an MSer.

So what’s with the cold, numb feet in the morning?

OK, maybe my feet are not always actually cold. They feel chilly – until I touch them and discover the skin is still warm.

It’s not like my feet are pins-and-needles tingly in the morning. They just feel frozen and numb.

Fortunately, this condition seems to improve, once I get up and walk around. But first thing each day, I am puzzled to wake up with absent-feeling feet.

Chalk one up for the MonSter.

On the other hand, the numb feet thing sort of spurs me to get up in the morning … just to get my feet back. (Hey, ya gotta find your feet, if you're gonna kick multiple sclerosis to the curb.)
