I haven’t been having many tremors lately, which I guess would seem to be a sign that the lesion has healed up some. On the other hand I found this article, Peripheral Cooling May Reduce Intention Tremor Associated With Multiple Sclerosis (Google Cache), a while back that seemed really interesting. While it certainly doesn’t sound like most pleasant treatment, the ability to write, use a keyboard, etc. is definitely very appealing if I ever get that bad.

  1. I’ve personally found that I’ve been symptom free for the most part, all winter long. My symptoms really dropped off in November, when it really started to turn cool/cold. Now that the weather is starting to warm up, my symptoms are reappearing.

    I believe that I’ve been in a minor flare since last Sunday (Easter). Nothing too severe, but it doesn’t make me happy at all.

    During the summer, I use neck coolers a lot. They’re cheap and easy to use. They reduce your core temperature by one whole degree, which really is a lot in the grand scheme of things.

    I got a couple coolers from http://www.heatreliefdepot.com last year.

  2. Hmmm, this might explain my preference for near-artic conditions in the Manor. ‘No greater than 70’ is my motto for the summer months while ‘No lower than 60’ is the wife’s mantra in the winter. It’s a wonder we even manage to get along since she is the type of person who likes Peuto Rico in the summer while I like North Dakota in the winter. Go figure.
