I have had MS for 24 years and am familiar with intermittent feelings of electricity shooting down my arm. For the past several weeks I have had rather severe groupings of electrical impulses in my right breast, lasting anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes . Has anyone else experienced anything similar?

I have not. This sounds very uncomfortable! Please be sure to tell your neurologist about this!

I have experienced bouts of L'hermittes. But it was limited to just my neck.

Good luck to you. Please share any sage advice you might have. You are a veteran for sure! 24 years is a long time! Have you taken a disease modifying medication in all that time?

I have been taking no modification medications as I have been very fortunate to have a mild case of relapsing remitting. I take mess to relieve the tingling and mumbness in my fingers. This is something totally new and more than a little annoying. Just wondered if I had any company out there. I know I have been very fortunate. I, too, have no lesions on my soul.

I'm so glad to hear of your slow/mild disease progression. That gives hope. Everyone's MS is different. How often do you see your neurologist? Can you get in to see him/her to discuss this new symptom?

Hi Gretchen
I saw my neurologist a few months ago before these symptoms appeared. I usually have a yearly visit. He has a busy practice but could probably fit me in for an appointment earlier. Don't know if it would do much good because I had an MRI at the time of my last visit and fortunately it was unchanged from 4 years ago. Of course, that's before I got these new symptoms. Sort of a Murphey's Law.

Indeed Murphy's law! I'm sorry! It's scary when MS decides to flare up. Do all those things you know can help. Reduce your stress and get lots of rest. Eat the best foods possible. Exercise gently but regularly.

If you don't visit your doctor, at least call and have them make note of this.
