    Other paraesthesia sensations

    Can we add other known paraesthesia sensations to this?
    May help a few of us think we're not crazy.

    (Burning, prickling, pins and needles, itching, even bugs crawling on you).

      I hate the bugs. *shudder*

      I agree, numbness is just one facet of paresthesia, and since there is only one area on the board covering this range of symptoms, the title really should be more inclusive of that range.

      Heck, jurt caling it Paresthesias with the sentence underneath being "Numbness, prickling, itching, and more are common in MS" or something to that effect would make a lot more sense.

            I swear I'm not trying to be nitpicky, but isn't it spelled paresthesia, not parasthesia?

              The correct spelling is really paraesthesia. (oh, and I noticed "pricking" instead of "prickling").

              I was also wondering if the term "burning" could be added to the list of sensations ...

              Thanks!

                LOL Thanks all! Another thing I losing is the ability to spell!

                The NMSS society spells it paresthesia, so I'm going with that.

                  I believe it's paresthesia in the US, and paraesthesia in the UK and possibly elsewhere; both are right depending on where you are typing from.

                  Thanks for putting up with us nitpickers, Seasha! I really appreciate all of the hard work that has been put into this forum.

                    I feel like there's a dying fish sewn under my flesh around the 5th/6th rib. I asked my landlady to feel it and she says she thought it was a muscle spasming. I also have chest pains and feel like there's bags of blood or I can feel my blood moving through arms/legs.

                        Ugh, yes! I have pins and needles in both hands always. The severity depends on my fatigue level but it's always there.

                        I also get the itching sometimes which is the worst when I'm trying to sleep.

                          How about the wet feet? I get the feeling sometimes that there is water dripping down my ankle or onto my feet. A couple times I thought I had had an accident! Not sure if that is a paresthesia or not but it feels pretty wacky

                            Well, this is embarrassing but I feel like there is toilet paper stuck in the crack of my rear.

                              LOL

                              Loopey, that crack about paper in your crack truly made me laugh out loud. I hate all the strange sensations (like bugs crawling up my legs at times), but yours is funny.
