Cold sensitivity and MS

Temperature sensitivity is something that many people living with MS experience. Some people find that higher temperatures can cause a temporary worsening of their symptoms while others find that cold temperatures temporarily exasperate their symptoms. Other people are impacted by both heat and cold.

You don’t look any different New Year 2022!

Lockdown and Covid have changed me forever.

For the past 10 years or so I have been keeping a similar routine. I'd get up in the morning, have a cup of tea, breakfast and get on with my day. My schedule would be all about spending time with people. It would be getting children ready for school or creche, chats with the coffee guy at my station, watching the bleary-eyed strangers on the train or the lovely woman who always graced the pavement past me on the street when I walked to work.  There’d then be the banter with work colleagues as we got on with the tasks at hand.

MS AND CHRISTMAS

There are the parts of Christmas I love, like time with family, winter walks, twinkling lights and evenings by a cosy fire. But the parts I like don’t always gel well with my MS. As a result, Christmas can turn into something of a marathon for me and excitement tends to quickly give way to dread when I realise there is no way my body will cope with all the festivities.

Fatigue Management

Earlier this year, MS Ireland hosted a webinar on fatigue management with Dr Michelle Murphy. Below is a summary of the information provided in the webinar.

The symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis can vary greatly from one person living with the condition to another. Fatigue is a very common symptom of MS, impacting between 75-90% of people living with MS, on some level. Fatigue can create feelings of exhaustion, tiredness, weariness or lack of energy. It is different to the fatigue experienced by those who do not live with MS. MS related fatigue can be very difficult to diagnose, understand and communicate. But what exactly causes fatigue? What effective techniques or strategies can be used to manage fatigue?

MS News issue 109

Dear Friends,

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, MS Ireland had to adapt some of the projects that we normally work on. The pandemic had an impact on our ability to carry out various fundraising activities and this resulted in a decision to scale back some of the projects we normally work on to ensure the sustainability of our organisation. One of those projects was MS News. We decided to share MS News in digital format only, in 2020 but are happy to be returning to physical print as we know that some of you may not have access to the internet.

MS News uses considerable resources in terms of creating, printing and posting. We are currently reviewing this part of our work and assessing its relevance to our community. We would love to hear from you on this. On page 35 you will find a short survey which we would greatly appreciate you completing and returning to us. Alternatively, you can email your feedback or suggestions to the editor, Aoife Kirwan – aoifek@ms-society.ie.
