Welcome to the MS board. If you are still smoking then certainly you probably don't have your circulation in synch. With MS, numbness and tingling usually don't come and go. I have numbness in both feet from about
the mid shins down. This was caused be damage to either my brain or spinal cord from demyelination. Once my feet went numb, they have never come back. Since this was due to a flare, they have gotten some better over a two year period but there is no "coming and going" that you describe. I also have some very slight but constant numbness in my left hand. It can get worse if I hold something in that hand for too long (like the phone :) but again that baseline numbness is always there. I would let your doctor know of these symptoms but I really don't think you have MS. Remember that I am not a doctor and that is just my opinion. I wish you the very best of luck.
I am glad t hear that your UC is much better. I would talk to your doctor about
ways you could quit smoking and keep that UC under control.
