I notice every time I get out of a hot shower, I'm exhausted. My neurological symptoms are worse as well, such as a hand intention tremor and buzzing in my feet.

Is this a giveaway that I have Multiple Sclerosis? I haven't been diagnosed with MS.

I've had Neuro Lyme, but for some years now, my doctor seems to believe the Lyme isn't as much a problem anymore.

All I know is showers are somewhat incapacitating and I'd love to know if that means I have MS, or if others with just lyme experience the same.

Thanks so much.

Marc

You can have neurological problems due to Lyme, some of which may not heal after treatment.

Sometimes, a person can't adjust to heat or cold quick enough.

So, if it started with Lyme, the nervous system never healed, or you still have Lyme. Sometimes MS can a manifestation of Lyme disease.

So. for you, not sure which it could be.

Just giving you my very limited knowledge on all of this.

Good Luck!

I've often had this. Especially early on with lyme. Just lyme, no MS.

So sorry you are dealing with this skimpbiz! I

totally understand this one. I feel like I avoid

showers, because it is so exhausting. I am NOT a

"dirty" person either. I used to be a shower a

day type person, but I just can't do it any more.

It just takes all my strength and energy. I have

become almost agoraphobic also, with not being

able to shower one of the main causes. My

doctor has suggested being tested for MS, but I

know I have been treating for Lyme and co-

infections pretty aggressively for several

months, but it is not getting better, but worse.

I didn't think there was a specific "test" for

MS.

Go for tepid water and see if that helps.

Keep us posted on what you find out.

I know many who have MCAS or MCAD have troubles with showers.

PS..orrn is correct .. there is no test for MS .. It's a diagnosis of exclusion.
