ive been feeling the tingling sensation down my back and legs when i look down. lately it has even been in my hand. since the tingling seems worse when i look down - does that mean my ms is getting worse? all in all i seem to feel better it's just that dumb tingling shock when i look down. my optic neuritis is about the same.
 
thanks

Hey Sunshine!

I don't know that i'd conclude the ms is getting worse, maybe just know that it's making it'self known to u. U should definitely report this to ur' doc tho! I"m glad to hear u'r other symptoms are better and hoping and praying the ON will follow suite. Take care and let us know how this goes. Please do report this to u'r doc as soon as u'r able.

Hey Sunshine,

Good for you for wanting to slow this disease down with a therapy.  I am on copaxone, as are many here, I manage it just fine.  It is  scary thing to start but I find now I am feeling really good about doing something towards maintaining my quality of life.

Good luck!

love and prayers,

sunshine, I'm new to all 'this' as well. And, it sounds like we may have had a similar introduction to this 'thing'. My introduction has been optic neuritis and occasional quick, sharp, 'stabbing', 'electric', pains. And now another mystery seems to be less so thanx to this thread. I hadn't heard the term, L'Hermittes before much less know what it was.

I did mention the pain to my Neuro on my first visit but I'd only had one or two at that point and she acknowledged it but didn't elaborate. Since then there's been at least one every other day somewhere on my body. Mine aren't bad – tho, I do have pretty high tolerance for pain – just 'shocking'. Some do make me jump.

I've learned alot about MS in the past few weeks and my CIS Dx but the 'individuality' of the disease makes it difficult to get a handle on what I'm personally experiencing. Since I found this forum yesterday, that's already begun to change.

I sincerely hope I can 'earn my keep' in this forum.

Chris

Hey Sunshine,
 
    I'm glad you went to the doc and got that looked into.  The L'hermittes sign is one of the more bizarre symptoms my husband gets.  By that I mean it doesn't seem to happen in conjuction with certain things like flares, heat, stress etc.  It just kinda happens at random sometimes. 
 
    Good luck with your med decision, and I'm sure you'll make the best choice for you.
