Why Exactly Does Heat Trigger Pain in Multiple Sclerosis Patients?

Even your bathwater makes a huge difference

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs suggests keeping the temperature of your tub water much lower than your body temperature. While this may seem like a rather small detail, the VA stresses that even a slight increase in your body temperature can lead to heightened MS symptoms. When in doubt, consider using a thermometer to check your body temperature and the temperature of your tub water.
