Sudden tingling/numbness in mouth and face

Hi everyone,

It’s been a little while since I posted anything on here. I was diagnosed with RRMS back in September, had a few symptoms but have been ok for a while. All of a sudden last night the tip of my tongue went numb, which has now spread to my nose and generally most of my face. A little bit on my left arm, almost like something is crawling under my skin. I spoke to out of hours doctors as I’m extremely anxious and the whole MS thing is so new to me.

The feeling went away for a few minutes then came back and has pretty much stayed. I’ve barely slept as there is no one I can call for advice due to the long weekend. I can’t contact my MS until Tuesday and I’m worrying myself so much.

Can anyone relate? If it’s definitely my MS I can deal with it but it’s just the not knowing.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated :face_with_head_bandage:
