Sounds very MS related. Might be a relapse if it’s there for over 24 hours I think

If you’ve got an infection, it could be related to that. Have you contacted your MS nurse? Obviously, you won’t be able to get hold of her today, but I’d try speaking with her tomorrow.

Sorry, friend, but it sounds like MS.
I had pins and needles and tingling for MONTHS before. It was on the soles of my feet and palms of my hands.
It started again on my hands today. I’ve been heading into a little relapse all this week so I’ve been expecting tingles to return 🙁

Had the left side of my face and some bit of skull go tingly, weird sensation but it did go back to normal just bit by bit over a couple months.

Hey @danrb80,
Yup that sounds very similar to me. I tend to bump and stumble my way down the hallway, and often get tingly bits in my hand where it rests against the desk where I am typing/writing.
I have also collapsed a few times, once where I couldnt get up at all and my flatmates had to haul me up and into bed were I remained. Usually with an hours rest I am good to go again, but there are times where it takes longer.
Take care mate

Hi Dan, exactly the same happened to me before my diagnosis! That first attack took a couple of months to die down and I’ve never been so frightened in my life. However, as soon as I was in the MS system with the neuro team and had access to MS nurses, things turned round. I’m sure it was the relief of not being on my own with it. The symptoms died back and I could ring up the nurses every day and get support. That was nine years ago and things have never been as bad again. So – hang on in there, help WILL come.
