Hi. Doctors are thinking that I have MS or another neurology problem.
I just woke up to numb but very sensitive skin, and throat. It feels like my body is vibrating. My oxygen levels according to my pulse ox are fine, but I cannot feel my throat, and many times my tongue is numb as well. Tonight it felt like my lungs also got numb. I will get muscle twotches and shakiness and they will get super weak. It is better now but still slightly there. Is this normal for MS? These symptoms happen during the day, but they are more extreme at night.

Are you seeing a neurologist? If not, then that's where you start. If a neurological problem is suspected, then a full exam is warranted. If that exam shows inappropriate reflexes or responses then an MRI of your brain should be next.

MS symptoms are as varied as the people who have them. It's impossible to say of your symptoms are caused by MS. It could be a long diagnostic journey before you get answers.

I'm sorry you find yourself suffering and looking for answers. Keep us posted.

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.
