Weird MS Symptoms

Have you ever experienced what you thought was a "weird" symptom and wondered if others with MS have experienced it too?

Share your "weird" symptom here and see if others have.

  1. Inner ear pain

    1. This….. I was shaking my head throughout the entire time i was reading. You are a pillar of strength.

    2. What a long and difficult journey, . I can't even imagine how frustrated you are. Do you think a second opinion might help? Please know we are here for you anytime you need support or a place to vent. Thinking of you. - Lori (Team Member)

  2. So many twitches! Mostly when I'm resting, especially in the morning when I first wake up. I lie in bed feeling random twitches/jerks in my arms, shoulders, hands, legs, feet.. I never know where will twitch next...sometimes one or more per minute.

    1. I take Baclofen always, but when the muscle spasms get out of control I may also take a couple caps of magnesium. Careful, because too much can have a laxative effect! Calcium can be helpful, too.
      Ask your neurologist for other home remedies that are safe and effective.

      I find that drinking coffee makes spasms worse, so I cut back.
      Avoid QUININE though! It can cause blindness!

    2. i have these soooooo much

  3. My recent one has me wondering is this the MS or anxiety. Occasionally I get a feeling like something is crawling on me. It's just in one spot or another, moves all over the body, but there is nothing there. It's quickly there and then gone. Sometimes it'll be once, other times it'll be once here, then in a few seconds again somewhere else.

    1. Yes, me too! I also get what feels like an insect bite - then its gone! The one I hate is "itching" all over part of my rash, just itching!

    2. I get this too! Woke up freaking out there was a spider crawling on me but there was nothing there
