    My husband has advance progressive MS and has been under a lot of stress due to family problems.  He is running a fever over 102 with major tremors and his legs, arms and hands are stiffened up so much he can't hold anything or walk.


    Thanks, CB

    Hello CeeBee


    I am so sorry your question was never answered.  I was just wondering how your husband is doing now. 


    This question has been asked a lot on this site and so I am wondering if there is some correlation between fevers and MS.  I do know that some of the MS medications can cause flu like symptoms including fevers.  But then too...having MS does not mean you are immune to everyday illnesses.  The fever could be totally unrelated to Multiple Sclerosis.


    The best advice I have to give is to ask your husband's doctor about the possible cause of his fever.


    I hope things are going well for you and your husband at this point in time.  Thank you for your question.
