Do period cramps cause pseudo symptoms?

Firstly I would like to apologise if this is too much for some people to hear about, but I feel like this is a safe space to talk about any MS-related issue. Recently when I get cramps, I notice my legs or arms start to feel numb or tingly. I wondered if this was odd or something that is experienced by others?

I’ve been trying to work this out too. From what I’ve read periods can exacerbate ms symptoms. My legs seem to get weaker. It happened today, I was at the park but my legs started feeling rubbish suddenly. I started my period on the way home (tmi sorry 😂).


I feel like my PMS symptoms have worsened and, conversely, my symptoms (especially fatigue) get worse before my period, so I'm with you! Maybe hormone surges somehow mess with things?
