MS Comic: Coffee Date

Numbness of the face, body or arms, and legs is one of the most common symptoms of MS. It may be the first MS symptom a person experiences. If you have facial numbness, you should be very careful when eating or chewing, as you may unwittingly bite the inside of your mouth or tongue. Or in Brooke's case - have an embarrassing moment and a thoughtful solution during coffee dates.
