Yes!: Numbness and tingling is very common symptom of ms, also movement like tremors or other movement can be symptoms--some sensory symptom make you move--so it is unclear which come first.

Yes: There is something called uhthoff's phenomenon. This is when the body temperature goes up, even slightly, and one can notice their symptoms or more pronounced symptoms. Think of it as the message short circuiting do to heat. Once you cool down, the symptoms improve. I deal with this with my ms.

Possible: Especially if you have Lhermitte's phenomenon due to involvement of cervical spinal cord in posterior columns.

?exacerbation/relaps: Sounds like your MS is poorly controlled, and maybe causing a movement disorder. Certainly get symptom treatment, but also make sure that you take a potent medication, such as Tysabri (natalizumab) or Gilenya. Make certain that enough Vitamin D-3 is on board, and that you do NOT have a co-morbidity such as B-12 deficiency. See an MS focused neurologist for more information.
