Now and then I will get a tingling feeling on different body parts. Ex....a part of a cheek on my face, a spot on my arm, just here and there. It doesn't last long. Maybe 30 seconds if that. Almost as if you had stuck your finger in a light socket, but nearly as intense. Does anyone else get this? I have told the neurologist about this. Thanks.
Hi Susie, I am not able to put my chin down to my chest, if I try I get like an electrical shock down my neck should arms amd fingers. It's called Lhermitte. Every time I go to mu Neuro he has me put my head forward and I tell him I can't and he says oh yeah "the electrical shock" It's one of the wonderful things of MS that we have to live with!!!!
I also get the tingles on different parts. And twitches they are very bothersome especially at noght when Im trying to sleep. I also have patches of burning or freezing sensations, mostly on my head. Any one else have this?
