So, any tips for how to get the numb feeling in the vagina to go away????? I can't feel anything except pressure! I'm obviously not very good at faking it either or so my hubby says.

Since I'm still not officially dx, do I call the neuro? Can they do anything for it?

It's not really bothering me that much except I like sex but when you can't feel anything what is the point.

Thanks for any tips!

You should report any new symptom to your doctor. There are other ways to achieve intimacy without vaginal contact, by the way.

Hey Friend!

Well, same here...i get this too and i haven't found anything that makes it go away or get better. In time it always does on it's own tho. Sorry, not any comfort here. :( U'r right...THAT"S hard to fake. Hang in there and do report this to the doc. He needs to know of any new symptom. It's at least another piece to the puzzle.

Hey Lysha! :)

Yeah, I get this as well. Like MS doesn't give us enough to put up with, now it has to follow us into the bedroom? Sheesh!

I've noticed, though, that I get a nice dose of numbness anywhere on my body that is repetitively rubbed. For example, my hands go numb when I'm washing my hair, my legs and hands get it when I'm applying lotion, etc. It always goes away eventually, though that doesn't really help us in the intimacy area.

Like Uppity said, though, there are other ways to achieve intimacy and I have found that a few alternatives to intercourse haven't produced the numbness (or at least not quite as bad...I can at least enjoy it!). So maybe you can have a little fun experimenting!

Hope this helps!

I did as you all suggested and called the neuro on Friday. The nurse called me back today and she is getting me scheduled for another MRI. I just had one 2 months ago. I am a little shocked and don't know what to think.

I have also noticed that I get a short warning of when I need to go to the bathroom and if I don't act on it I pee my pants. I also don't have any feeling as to when I need to have a bowel movement. I don't have BM accidents I just get constipated because I can't feel when my body is ready to have one. I have tried just sitting and waiting but nothing comes. When I do have a BM I can't feel it coming out. I just feel my stomach pushing.

I guess I really do have a problem with EVERYTHING down there being numb. I am confused because I can still feel certain sensations on the skin, like my hubby grabbing my butt or smacking it.

I am so very confused at this point and I'm questioning what this new MRI might show.

Thank you for being here for me!!

Oh Lysha, BIG HUGS!!! I hate to hear that you are experiencing these symptoms, but if they have prompted your neuro to look deeper maybe this MRI will bring you closer to some answers.

I know exactly what you mean about being numb all over, but still being able to feel certain things. It's very odd and doesn't make a lick of sense. So many doctors thought I was exaggerating because I used the word "numb" but when they poked me with things I could feel it. Yet I couldn't feel a glass when I tried to pick it up. It's very weird.

I'm thinking of you, though, I really am. I love checking in on your myspace. Please keep us posted on this new MRI and what your neuro has to say.

Love and Light!
