i’m newly diagnosed and i’m having burning sensations in my face, hand and arm.

i’ve noticed swelling in my arm and hand. is swelling normal when a flare up happens?

Hi again Oceanblue.

No, external swelling is not a usual symptom of MS. The only places usually inflamed are ones you can’t see from outside: your brain and spinal cord!

I don’t mean to scare you, but please get this checked out, in case it’s nothing at all to do with it.


Ditto. Best to see your GP. Karen x
