    MS and burning feet and vibration in my head???
    freckles1963 posted:
    Hi there, I have had MS since 2007 and actually pretty fortunate thankfully!! However, it has been extremely hot where I live 90-100 degrees!! Well needless to say I was down for the count

    Has anyone else had these strange symptoms? My feet have been burning, tingling and hurt to walk or have just sheets on them? Also a weird sensation feels like a vibration or something that feels like it either goes up my spine to my head or vice verse?? I am not really dizzy when this happens but definately lose my balance??

    Just started Predisone (24 pills a day 50 mg each pill) for 3 days. I haven't really had a big flare for years and super upset but it could be worse I guess.

    Thank you!!

    Hello Annie,

    Sorry to hear that you are in the midst of a relapse, hopefully the steroids have you feeling better soon! I have had similar symptoms where my arms have become hypersensitive, even the slightest touch hurt! The spinal sensation sounds like it could be a Lhermitte's sign. I'm assuming your neuro is aware of everything going on since you are on steroids?

    Wishing you a speedy recovery!
