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?

yes, a total spine MRI scan is a good idea.a pinched nerve or spinal stenosis could be causing your symptoms.let me know if you have other questions.if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you todaywe only get credit for helping clients after positive feedbackyou can always reach me directly with "a question for Dr. David" in the medicine or oncology categories if you have other questionshere is my website if you need to reach me:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-dr-david/Thanks for using JustAnswers.com
