    Hi Heidi. So sorry to hear everything you’re going through. We really recommend reaching out to your medical team and discussing any new or worsening symptoms with them. If the doctor isn’t available, sometimes a nurse on staff is really good person to talk things through with. Numbness and tingling is a symptom many people with multiple sclerosis experience. Here’s an article that might be worth checking out: Wishing you the best! Let us know how everything goes. – Kelly, Community Manager
