I know it's common knowledge that getting overheated is bad news for people with MS; but what about having a fever?

I am getting sick with a sore throat and ear ache and I'm starting to feel feverish. Today, the right side of my head and face was also feeling numb and tingly. I had a lesion in the pons region of my brain stem about two years ago and ever since my body's ability to regulate temperature has been all over the place. From past experience, I know that having a fever for a day can make me very slow both physically and cognitively for two or three weeks! I don't want to have to go through this right now......it's terrible timing as I just started another semester of school and I need to be able to THINK!!!

Does anyone else experience an increase in symptoms when they have a fever? How do you manage it?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

I'm not sure I can handle having the MonSter raise it's ugly head right now... Sometimes, I just don't think I have another fight left in me.
