Loss of hot cold sensation as a sign


#1

Has anyone had an experience of loss of the feeling of hot or cold sensation with ADEM


#2

I am more sensitive for Cold. Especially when it is getting cold outside my muscle are more stiff


#3

Yes!

Finally someone else with this problem! Not that I'm happy for you, but you know what I mean... My body reacts normally to hot and cold environment, but my brain(?) can't interpret the feeling. I understand it when my body starts to shiver, sweat, my muscles stiffens or I get dizzy.

Do you now where your lesions were located?

My son aged 26 was admitted to hospital with the following symptoms; unable to urinate, unable to differentiate between hot and cold… this was evident on his arms by patches of red/hot and white/cold areas up his arms and chest, tremors and shakiness while standing. As the steroids and pain killers kicked in these symptoms are becoming less prominent.
