Cold plunge pool?

Has anybody used a cold plunge pool before? And what were your experiences?

I have access to a spa and cold plunge pool where I swim. I haven't found any useful articles about this and MS though. I'm interested particularly in whether the cold pool (or alternating between spa/cold) helps.

I can only share that swimming in the sea I get spasms as I walk in as the cold hits my feet and then legs, so I know I could not plunge into a cold pool.

I havnt tried a cold plunge pool but I get the same spasm in my legs when I walk into cold sea water, sometimes it feels like my legs give way but if I persevere and wait till they get used to it they seem to get better. I have a pool and when it cools down I get the same happen when I first get in and then better when I wait for awhile. I have a swim and I feel so energetic after. I swim every morning because it makes me feel great for the day. :D
