ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS). In the overwhelming majority of people with MS, pseudoexacerbations are triggered by heat. In fact, anything that raises body temperature can bring on one of these pseudo-attacks, whether it be a fever, the environment, or exercise. The most important thing to recognize is that if one is having fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, unusual headaches, or feeling sick in ways that represent an experience apart from MS at the same time one's MS symptoms are suddenly increased, this should be a clue that this attack is not related to a new inflammation of the nervous system.
