The weird feeling i have

Hi

The best way to describe how MS feels in my body is……you know when you have to brake real sudden and you think “gosh that was close”! you get this strange adrenolin feeling rushing through your body and its all nervy, and faint pins and needles in feet and hands, also foot drop

I used to get it down my spine whenever I bent my neck forwards. It was one of the earliest symptoms I had, but I’m glad to say that it went away.

recently everytime I bend my neck down I get a shooting nerve feeling right down to my toes and my whole leg re-acts and kind of “jumps up”, is this a common thing??? or just my weird body!

I believe you’re having Lhermitte’s sign, its a results of demylemation to the spinal nerve. If you’re interested then wikipedia has a definition http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lhermitte%27s_sign

Its not an un common symptom for people with MS, I remember when I had it prior to being diagnosed, I kind of liked the feeling, it was a nice little ‘tickle’ down my back for me.

I used to get a tingle at the bottom of my spine when bent my head forward when first diagnosed. Don’t get it now, but interesting to find out what it was.

Thankyou to all, I have looked into this and it is definitely lhermittes!!! I am so worried, does this mean I am going downhill fast??? I feel I need an MRI
I bet if I go to my Doc she will have never heard of it!!!
I will have to explain to her! Does’t this make you mad, I would appreciate any more info you guys have on this xxx
