Should I get some sunshine if my multiple sclerosis symptoms are worse because of the cold?

ANSWER

Even on crisp fall and cold winter days, who doesn’t love the feeling of sunshine on their shoulders? Step outside and soak up some rays. You’ll warm up, and you’ll help your body make some much-needed vitamin D. An added benefit? A little sunshine might help boost your mood.
