It could be MS but may be a manifestation of tension or anxiety or deficiency of calcium or magnesium.. The brain communicates with the skin and can sometimes cause this type of symptom. If you still have concerns, consult a neurologist for evaluation.

Tingling is nonspecific and nondiagnostic and that alone is not MULTIPLE sclerosis. See no rationale to see neurologist at this point. You could confer @ HT for virtual consult which may explore more
