Doctor insights on:
I've read that MS used to be checked (at least partially) with the "hot tub test." I've noticed my symptoms (dizziness, balance issues, numbness/tingling extremities) actually seem BETTER when I'm in a hot bath/shower. Mean anything or coincidence?

Bp 120/135. Shortnes of breath. Complete numbnes of left arm. Tingling in my extremities. Dreaming sensation. Disoriented. But all symptoms lasted
120/??: Not sure what your BP is since 120/135 is impossible. Tingling, dreamy feeling disorientation suggests hyperventilation but a toxic drug exposure could do it too.
