Skin feels like sun burnt. palms of hands and soles of feet have tight sensation. right arm aches.numbness feeling left torso &legs. MRI normal. MS?

If your neurologist is suspicious of MS, a spinal tap may also be diagnostic. You may also consult a dermatologist regarding possible dermatosclerosis. Otherwise, your doctor may need to perform a physical including serology for thyroid dysfunction. ...Read more
