I have a new symptom-leg related am i going crazy?

I started getting vertigo/dizziness over a week ago-which I am used to getting every so often.

But the last few days i have had problems with my left leg- Occasionally the bottom of my left leg has a warm sensation (like i have put my leg in warm water or in a warm towel??) that lasts awhile then disappears. However yesterday I have noticed the bottom of my foot feels like its on fire! a burning foot sensation. I have RRMS and am on betaferon injections every other day.

I went to do my usual injection yesterday and used my usual ice pack and the ice pack hurt my left thigh as my leg was SO sensitive- I can’t touch my left leg without thinking OUCH- its like a shock sensation when i try to touch my left leg.its intermittent but now the numbness, tingling and pins and needles have started with my left leg. Also I had an itching sensation - it only affects my left leg??? I haven’t had this symptom before?? I thought I was imagining it at first but it keeps coming back and now my fatigue is worse and I still have vertigo a little.

I am going to contact my MS Nurse on Monday

Is this a common symptom? Its just annoying me with the heat sensation, numbness,tingling and itching sensation that comes and goes.

I’m afraid it all sounds very familiar to me. I think you are wise to be contacting your MS nurse. If it is MS-related, and the sensitivity etc is being a problem for you, there are things they can prescribe to help.

Yes I agree it is a common sensory symptom in MS. I have PPS and have had symptoms like this for 15 years. Your MS nurse should give you good advice. Take care.

Thanks everyone for your comments- glad I am not crazy, LOL. Hope others going through it too overcome it soon. I haven’t had this sensory symptom before, but looked it up and it is common.

The numbness/sensitivity is moving up my left side now. I had thought if i ignored it- it would go away! but will speak to my MS nurse on Tues.

Thanks
