MS itch

Hi everyone

Can anyone recommend anything for the horrible itchy, crawly sensation. I have been dogged with them for days & they also stop me from sleeping.

Would be grateful for any advise?

The only thing that’s helped my itch has been pregabalin and it’s worked really well for it.

@kcshea, Pregabalin and Gabapentin are the usual prescribed medications to dampen down these sensations.

You could also try a Magnesium supplement and/or even a Magnesium ointment that can be applied directly to the itch location.
