How should you keep cool to fight multiple sclerosis fatigue?

ANSWER

Heat and humidity can bring on fatigue. If you start to lag when the temperature rises, stay inside where it's air-conditioned. Or try wearing a cooling vest. The most common type has insulated pockets that hold small ice packs. You wear it over your clothing, and it keeps you cool for several hours. You can also wear headbands or neckbands that use the same method.
