Ms Symptoms Tingling
Can permanent MS damage still have symptoms with it that come and go? IE tingling, numbness off and on?left side is damaged and those things come/go
Comments: Fluctuating symptoms can occur, and some of these may involve "ephaptic short circuiting" due to loss of myelin insulation due to permanent damage. This can easily be controlled and treated using some anti-epileptic drugs. Need to exclude superimposed co-morbidity, such as nerve compressions, by EMG study, and check B-12. Do you need a more potent medication?? ...Read more
What are the possible reasons for tingling feet after a hot shower? I don't really have any other symptoms except anxiety. Worried about ms.
I have ms symptoms. Got MRI, it was clear. Could I have Primary Progressive? I'm 17 and scared. Twitching, tingling, tremors, Weakness, stiffness.
May not be MS: If those are your MS symptoms, you may be ok. At least, you may not have MS. Primary progressive MS may cause atrophy or weakness, but those other symptoms are not very common. Perhaps the cause lies elsewhere, such as with medical side effects, or a blood chemistry abnormality. ...Read more
I've read that MS used to be checked (at least partially) with the "hot tub test." I've noticed my symptoms (dizziness, balance issues, numbness/tingling extremities) actually seem BETTER when I'm in a hot bath/shower. Mean anything or coincidence?
RESPONSE: Yes, in the past, prior to imaging advances, "Hot Bath" test was utilized to exacerbate patient symptoms to confirm diagnosis, but no longer used as was often false positive, and MRI supplanted. Occasional MS patients seem to do better in warmer environments, and some even do worse in cold weather. Thus, your responses are not indicative of definitive diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Went to GP with slight tingling in left leg. He dismissed MS because I showed no other symptoms. Chalked it up as compressional neuropathy. Now my feet are burning, especially when I sit, they feel like they're on fire. Could that still be caused by compr
Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS
Explanation: Although MS can be a tough diagnosis due to vague symptoms, I would doubt your problems are caused by MS. Suggest you have an MRI of your neck, as that is most likely the anatomic location for your issues. Your head/neck pain could be c/w Occipital Neuralgia, and could consider problems in arms/legs due to peripheral neuropathy if neck films are benign. ...Read more

The Dr will request specific tests, an MRI of the head, and nerve conduction tests. Dont let it go, see the advise of the competent specialist, Google the physician. . , ...Read more
Could I have multiple sclerosis even if my MRI was normal? I have a lot of the symptoms (muscle spasm, weakness, tingling down my back and legs), but my MRI didn’t show anything. Can an MRI miss ms?
Typically not: Mri is the most sensitive test available to aid in the diagnosis of ms. While there are rare cases of MRI negative ms, the vast, vast, vast majority of patients with ms have MRI abnormalities. Having said that, given your symptoms it would be important to know if the cervical and thoracic spinal cord were imaged. If brain and spinal cord imaging negative then not likely to be ms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have hastimatos thyroiditis. I've been having symptoms like weak arms, legs, tingling feet-esp. After a shower, dizzy.. Worried about MS thanks to g?
Perhaps a thyroid : Issues could be due to hashimoto's or even the treatment for the thyroid. But maybe the warm water from the shower is uncovering some underlying demyelinated nerves and exacerbating underlying problems. Hard to say you do or do not have ms based on above, so see your doctor and decide if worthwhile to have a neurologist get involved. ...Read more
