I get the same, feels like there is something crawling in my head. The pain in your chest sounds like the ms hug, it can be quite painful 😪

@libertinelibz , these are both symptomatic of MS.

As @anths suggests, the pain on your chest is probably the MS Hug :-

The other “sensory” symptoms are unfortunately quite common :-

When I was first diagnosed about six months in I had the feeling like ants were crawling under my skin but it did eventually go away. Good luck!

I have days when I scratch all day. Fortunately it’s not every day. The chest squeeze sometimes. Not all things are MS so stay aware of your body changes. I agree Ms is enough without anything else adding more fun. Take care

Hi @libertinelibs
Maybe you should get some advice from a doctor regarding the aensation in your chest. I have had similar symptom of Ms hug and this was blamed (and it still may be that!) but I’ve been having a myriad of blood tests and things are pointing towards a problem with the bile duct causing similar crushing sensation. Just a thought as our MS seems to take the blame for everything – one of my GPs just happened to think outside the Ms box to think about other causes. Still no actual definite idea though. Good luck to you hope you get it sorted. 😀

Thank you to everyone for the replies it’s good to know I’m not going mad and other people have the crawling sensations too, but I will definatly go back to GP and rule out it’s nothing else
Thank again x
