    Hello, I have not been diagnosed but have found that many of my seemingly random issues match the early signs of MS. I came here because I am wondering about one symptom in particular-the tingling in my limbs. It started 2 and a half weeks ago. I have been feeling it in my left hand constantly (except for this morning when I woke up at 3 am) and sometimes up my arm as well. I feel it in my legs when sitting for a little while, especially if I'm in an odd position, but even when sitting normally it eventually comes. It's like if I were sitting on my legs and they started to "fall asleep," but I'm not sitting on them. I know the tingling is common with MS, but I'm wondering if it presents itself in this way, or if it's more out of the blue, or come and go?

    Hi!
    Here is information about numbness and tingling and MS- as for what is typical for MS, you'll learn that MS acts differently in everyone, so there really isn't a standard or normal for how symptoms present themselves.

    For me it is an all the time thing. My impression is that it is low grade spasms. They were getting much worse on my arms and hands to the point of extreme pain and difficulty using hands and arms. I now take 100mg hemp oil at night and sometimes during the day and it makes the situation tolerable, along with 600 mg alpha lipoic acid, and I am more active. I also use hemp oil topical cream for my hands when I am ambitious and over do using my hands.
