I have been to Oregon & as soon as my son graduates we're moving there. I love it, I hate the sun & the heat and I felt great while I was there. I also have RRMS and I hear the MS clinic in Portland is great.
We want to move to Lincoln City or anywhere on the central coast. Inland can get hot and I'm not happy once it hits 75:(. Where are you looking to move to? What meds are your husband taking. Hugs, Tammy
Years ago, I worked at Ruidoso Downs in New Mexico. If I could find a full-time permanent job there, I would move in a heartbeat! The altitude is not exessive, the weather in general was, while I was there, pretty mild and the humidity stayed fairly low (there were frequent thunderstorms, but as soon as they blew over, is was pleasant again) I've heard they get some snow but I can handle that a lot better than I can handle heat.
I too suffer from heat related fatigue. It is called heat sensitivity. Here is what I suggest to all of us, no matter what climate we live in.
Get cooling vests. These are vests that have pockets which hold ice packets. They are kind of expensive, but they are worth every penny. They allow you to be in hot climates like the desert areas and places with high heat humidity. I have one and am glad I have it. To find them, Google "cooling vests" and you will find different companies who sell them in a variety of models.
Where can you get the cooling vest I am very heat sensitive and would love to get one. I am missing out on so much I love camping and fishing and just the great outdoors but I haven't done this in years the side effects just isn't worth it. Can yu help me please
I got mine through polar products inc. Just type that name in & it will bring up their web site. I got the one that zips up with the ice packs. I recommend getting an extra set of ice packs just in case you are going to be out all day.
You are going to be so happy, it's the greatest thing ever. Let me know if you get one & how you like it. Hugs, Tammy
