Intense painful tingling in both arms

Had two episodes of these, started In fingers travelled up both arms together over shoulders up to head, causing further unbalance, dizziness and weakness, unable to move arms. It last about 5 minutes. Is this to do with MS.

Hi,

Tingling is an extremely common symptom of MS, so a connection is so likely as to be almost certain. The only thing that seems a bit out of the ordinary is the very brief duration of the episodes. Were you doing anything strenuous at the time, or were you stressed? I sometimes get brief spells of symptoms I donโ€™t have all the time if Iโ€™ve been pushing myself physically, or if I get very agitated or upset about something.

1st time was a gentle walk and second time getting washing out of the drier. No stress either
