So, I was in the bathtub today and I put my arms down by my sides (under the water, to keep my arms from getting cold). Within moments, I had INTENSE tingling/pins and needles in my fingers. It was much stronger in my right hand only the last 3 fingers than anywhere else.
I thought it was odd, so I took my hands out of the water and it stopped within 20 seconds. I put them back in the water down by my sides and it came back. It felt like I’d been sitting on my hands for an hour, lost circulation, then stuck my hands in a bucket of freezing water.
What does “MS tingling/pins and needles” feel like? It must last quite a while and not go away, right? As opposed to being temporary and stopping so quickly? I just thought it was strange because I’d had my arms down by my sides for less than 30 seconds – it wasn’t like I’d been sitting on my hands for ages or something. What an odd thing. Come to think of it, the fingers on my right hand are tingly right now, but it’s hardly noticeable. I could easily ignore it.
This week has been weird… constant twitchy eye, extreme fatigue yesterday, tingly fingers… I wonder if I should see my GP again and tell him about this? Would it speed up the process of getting in to be seen by the neurologist?
