About 3 months ago I had a virus and not long after

Customer Question

Hi. About 3 months ago I had a virus and not long after started to have parathesia. Tingling in feet and hands. I then started to have leg pains which then led to arm pain. I had blood work done and all was fine. The parathesia stopped but leg and arm pain continued. I saw an Osteopath and they seem to ease the pain. About a week ago I started to have tingling in feet again and lots of weird sensory sensations. Burning skin, electric shocks, pain in face. I had more blood work done and again all fine. I have a family history of ms. I am waiting for an mri and my doc says they can do nothing more for me as I need to see a specialist. The pain is getting me down as it's so persistent everywhere. I am very stressed and tired. Does this sound like ms?
