Could be, or you may be lucky enough to be getting a two for one. I don’t think the nerves on your face and legs are in the same part of the brainstem, but then I’ve never studied neurology, so I’m going to go for a definite possibility. I guess the sensation part of the brain could be experiencing issues, but I really am just guessing, sorry.

My first major relapse was pins and needles/numbness sensation in right hand which (as I hadn’t been diagnosed at that time)crept up over a 3 month period so that I was completely numb by the upper arm down, then at that 3 month period I woke up with optic neuritis in my left eye. That was when I was diagnosed and given IV steroids 2 weeks later which then started to alleviate symptoms – hope that helps!
