I'm sorry you're feeling poorly! No, MS can't cause a sore throat...but having a sore throat and other illnesses sure can make your MS worse, particularly if you have a fever. Fortunately the "worse" is only temporary -- once you get rid of the fever, the MS symptoms should subside some.
If the sore throat seems to only come at night -- maybe it's an allergy? And do you sleep with your mouth open? (Yeah, I know..how would you KNOW if you sleep with your mouth open??) Anyway, there are lots of allergies in the summer of course -- all that pollen and stuff blooming everywhere, and folks can develop allergies even when they've not had them before. Or a sinus drainage can cause a sore throat.
Anyway, I hope that gets cleared up and you're feeling better for your Florida trip. Going to Florida in the summer time wouldn't be high on my list of places to go, so it's good you've planned ahead and gotten a scooter there. Do take it easy -- the Florida heat and humidity can only add to your fatigue!
I’m glad you posted this update, and hope you start feeling better really soon! That is so great that you and your nephew will be trying out scooters for the first time together…maybe you can have scooter races? Watch out Disney World come September, huh J. What is the status on swimming with the dolphins while you are down there? I realize I need to start bugging you about it again.
I hope today is a better day for you,
I am definitely going to check into a cooling vest and whatever else might be helpful, thanks Rhonda. I did order a canopy for my scooter, so hopefully that helps too... typing that felt funny, still can't believe I need a scooter! ah well.
Uppity, yes I hope this viral thing is gone before my trip too. My throat feels better, but I have pain behind my eyes and am sooooo tired. I think my spleen may be enlarged? I have pain on that side and my other lymph glands (like my groin) are taking turns being sore too. sigh. I guess all that can be done is rest, so I'm doin it.
Thanks for reminding me Sunny, I need to check with my sister about the dolphins again. It costs almost $300 per person so I may be going alone, but that's fine with me as long as I get that dream checked off my list! :)
Take care all,
