It’s hot around here this July week. For people suffering from multiple sclerosis, extreme heat can exacerbate MS symptoms and make them even more uncomfortable than usual. It’s can help to have a surefire way to cool the body down quickly and alleviate symptoms like fatigue and malaise.
The inside of your wrists, that same spot where a nurse might feel for a pulse, is the most accessible place to rapidly cool your bloodstream. Hold your wrists under a cool stream of water for a couple minutes and feel your entire body cool down almost instantly.
Pressing ice cubes, or even a chilled unopened can of soda, against that sensitive skin there on the wrists can work as well, for quick cooling.
