Numbness and tingling advice needed!

I did a little bit of heavy lifting in the hot weather we’ve just had and the next morning I woke up to my entire right side of the body completely numb… it’s almost like pins and needles but not quite there. This is my first major relapse and I’m panicking a bit. Has anyone got any advice or tips to help recover and get my feeling back? I haven’t started treatment just yet.

Hot weather can cause MS symptoms exacerbate but these go once it cools down. If its lasting longer than 24 hours contact your MS nurse or team. I hope you feel better soon


If it’s a new symptom then contact your MS nurse. If it’s something you’ve had before then keep an eye on it and if it doesn’t settle then contact your MS nurse. Sometimes the heat and overdoing it bring on existing symptoms again
