Numbness

I have what feels like numbness, yet I can feel my arm! Does that make sense? It feels a bit like when you have pins and needles from leaning on something and when it’s starts to come back, that horrible painful feeling. I had very bad nightmares all last night and this morning I felt like I was dragging my foot but I wasn’t. My arm feels heavy like I need to pick it up to use it. However I can use it? Does this mean I am heading for a relapse or will it pass?

I am sorry to hear of your plight. I am sorry I do not know the answer.
You eloquently describe the feeling I have had in my right arm continously for the last 20 months and my other limbs on and off.
I am curiouse as to whether you are sometimes symptom free?
That said I am doing really well myself , presently, aside from what you describe and some transient pain , dreadful things this MS :evil:

I do hope this feeling will pass and that you do not go into a relapse.
My fingers are crossed for you , my dear friend.

Yes i am symptom free, well what i consider to be! I always have the odd niggle or pins and needles etc but this is worse then normal. It feels a bit better this morning, but i fear its one of those things that wears you down throughout the day. Hopefully it will pass but i have two little children so picking them up is painful! thanks for your support.

Hi Moss, I’m not sure about this either sorry. I have the weird numbness in my feet and legs and have had since June, I’ve not noticed any improvement so not sure if this counts as a relapse or residual symptomes. I am on amitryptaline for this which Isn’t helping much. I too have two small children, I think I’ve learned to ignore it cause I never get a chance for a rest!
