Multiple sclerosis (MS) is neurodegenerative disease characterised by temperature sensitivity, where changes in body temperature induce transient symptoms worsening. There is no pharmacological intervention for this condition and patients often develop their own thermal resilience practices. Yet, there is no formal evaluation of the variety and perceived effectiveness of those practices. The aim of the study was to survey the experience of temperature sensitivity and the individual strategies used to combat it, in MS.
