Ok this is really weird - not sure if it’s a symptom of MS or it’s just one of those weird things you never find a reason for…hopefully others will chip in and I might start to figure it out. It’s also not a big deal really - just annoying.
I always use lip salve type stuff. Have done for many many years. Hence I don’t usually have any problem with dryness of my lips. However - for the last few months and every 2-3 weeks there will be a day where my lips just feel intensely sore for no reason…the skin on my lips feels weird. A day later - and it doesn’t matter whether i’ve slept with my lips in a jar of vaseline - the skin goes hard and starts to peel off. Once it’s all peeled off it’s ok for another few weeks again.
It’s also not the whole of the lips…there’s quite a large area of the lower lip (about half) and a smaller portion of the upper lip (about a quarter)…always in the same place.
I cannot logically think it’s something to do with MS (although i’ve never heard anyone say that MS is logical anyway) but I cannot for the life of me think what it could be.
Can anyone help me to shed some light on this? I do know it’s a minor piddly little annoyance - but it’s MY minor piddly annoyance and I’d like to try and figure it out.
