    shelly21- I love the heat. Weirdly my left foot was still blue, ice cold and very swollen. But the rest of me enjoyed being warm and free of loads of bulky clothes πŸ™‚

    Symptoms began in left foot 2017. Now mainly left side, speech and some loss on right side too.

    Unable to walk unaided (powerchair user), poor speech, left hand behaves like a drunk toddler but generally positive and determined.

        One of the first things I noticed with my condition was I didn’t like the cold. More hot days please 😎

          Stephen wont part with his clothes, I'm fibbing he didn't want his jumper on. Hes very keen his feet are covered during the night incase they get cold he certainly won't give his socks up. I suggested shorts today but I got a funny look.
          when i can think of something profound i will update this.

            Tony yes feet and hands for me. I have a foot spa and I just love it. I miss my bath so much.

                Hubby is always hot, weird hot patches that move around. Never has bed covers on or socks.

                Neurologist said to do with overactive nerve endings. He is finding the heat unbearable. Plenty of fans on. its like being in a wind tunnel.

                Downside is the insects biting him, the wind keeps blowing the citronella candles out!

                  MMG I swear by citronella oil. You can put few drops in water spray bottle and spray on legs etc. Keep the critters away.

                        Even my naked little tootsies were too hot outside after lunch and sent me indoors for a while πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

                        Honestly, I'd prefer a 'pleasant' 22deg for sitting out in the sunshine to stop me melting in the wheelchair πŸ™„πŸ˜
