Not always: No two people have exactly the same symptoms of MS due to the complexity of the disease. Some symptoms may come and go, while others linger. Numbness and paresthesias are common symptoms. Don't let MS to control your life. Talk to pain management specialist to treat and manage your symptoms so you can stay healthy and productive. Take a good care.
