Could I just ask those who have experienced pins & needles and numbness (particularly those with PPMS but any input would be helpful), is this something that usually happens randomly or is it when you’re compressing a body part or leaning on it? I ask this because I find myself getting pins and needles and numbness, basically a falling asleep sensation when i lean on my arm for a few seconds, and i also get the same with my legs but it’s only if I’m sat in a certain position. My whole bum goes numb too if i sit directly on it which is why I’m not sure if this is MS related or not. I’m new to all this but as it seems to only be when I’m putting some pressure on nerves it makes it seem like maybe i have a trapped nerve or another problem, but then surely it would only affect one body part not multiple?
Anyway, if anybody could let me know if they relate to this or if i perhaps need to see a doctor about it and treat it as a separate issue that would be great, this is particularly directed at those with PPMS as It seems with RRMS you would experience consistent numbness for a few months which is a little different but if anybody with RRMS experiences this outside of a relapse then please feel free to advise me.
