It seems that I can remember reading somewhere that sensations of hot water being poured over your skin could be symptomatic of MS. Can anyone recall this?
I have been reading some of your posts this afternoon, and I guess that I am the newest member of limbo-land, but in the very early stages. MS has been suggested, I will have more appointements before we get to the MRI stage I suppose, but the more I read, the more symptoms I recognize.
Thanks to anyone who may know what these sensations are called or where to find any literature about this.

When you have a problem with the circuitry in the brain, all sorts of strange sensations can occur. I don't know that "sensations of hot water being poured..." is specifically a symptom of MS. More that it is a strange neurological sensory sensation that the cause needs to be investigated. Folks who do have MS can have all sorts of sensations...this, the feeling of water trickling down the leg (or arm or face or...), feeling of a bug crawlling on you, itches for no reason, etc.
...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....

All of those things sound like me, along with incredible difficulty in focusing my eyes, dizziness, double/blurred vision, seeing stars, and somtimes being unable to control my hands as well as I would like...frustrating at 26 with no health insurance...thanks for the info :)

Hey Jess26

Welcome to the board. I do hope u can work with u'r doc and determine the cause of these symptoms. I haven't felt anything exactly as u say, but have felt like my hands were wet at times. In fact, that was one of the first things that happened with me. As Uppity suggested, the symptom u describe could be from any of a number of neurological conditions. Yes, u do need to further investigate with u'r doc. U may want to start a journal to keep track of these symptoms. It'll be priceless to u in recalling all that's going on and has happened in the past since remembering details can be difficult. It's good to have u with us and i hope u'll be posting often to let us know how u are and how u'r testing is progressing. Please ask any question u like and we'll be happy to help as much as we can.

Hey Jess,

I just read that you don't have any health insurance. Do not pursue the MS (or any other for that matter) dianosis until you fix that. Once you have been labeled with MS or another chronic illness, you will never be able to get any kind of insurance including health, life, or disability on your own again. Make sure you get a policy that doesn't have a limit on prescription drug coverage because the MS drugs are very expensive (~$1500 a month). I'm not trying to scare you with this but you need to find a way to get that coverage. I don't want you to get answers for what you're going through and then not be able to do anything about it.

I cannot repeat with Mexaxinine said loudly enough. I work in healthcare, and have seen this happen. The MRI will cost between $1500 - 2000 also! What state are you from? NY sponsers many health plans for people who cannot afford "regular" coverage.

Please make insurance your number one priority before you continue to look for answers!
