Common Questions and Answers about Ms symptoms pain itching

I do not have a dx of ms as of yet but the itching has been more than bothersome to me. My symptoms started with itching in my feet that was more irritating that the pain. I sometime am up all night. In some cases, it can last for days and there is nothing I have found to relieve it. It is mostly in my right foot, leg and hand. The itching is deep under the skin and scratching does not help. This started for me about 3 years ago. I can sympathize with you.
no dx for me, only trigeminal neuralgia, but in the last couple days I have had this crazy itching, started on my face now everywhere, I think that everywhere I have had pain it is now replaced with an itch, and new places of shocking, electric pain are taking place. Does anyone know why the itch and anything you can do for it.????
Hi, Mike. If you're going bananas you have a lot of company. Supposedly MS itching occurs only in one or two spots at a time. That makes sense, because it is a paresthesia, like tingling, and results from a given CNS area going a bit bonkers from demyelination. If the coating on the wiring gets chewed off, weird signals happen. Right? Right. Or so I thought.

I have spent the last few days reading everything I could about MS on the net. After familiarizing myself with the symptoms of MS I have two questions. First, what percent of MS patients initially exhibit urinary problems as the first sign or one of the first signs of MS? I ask this because, with two possible exceptions, I don't seem to exhbit any of the typical MS onset symptoms (at least the ones I as a layperson can determine). A quick run down of what I have: 1.

The itching is one of the symptoms that led me to think I may have MS. I'm still undx, but this is one of the worse things! Mine started with the right foot and would itch off and on then go away for awhile. Then the itching started in my hands, but not as bad as that foot! Now it is both hands, both feet and sometimes when it's really bad I will itch almost up to my knees. Nothing helps, that I have found, but I haven't been on any of the drugs scripted for this.
I am undiagnosed also, but family physician thinks I may have MS. Been having dizzy spells, blurred vision, pain, tingling, itching, buzzing feelings, and extreme fatigue for several years. It comes and goes, but lately it has been more frequent and lasting longer. Have had blurred vision, weakness, and clumsiness for over a month this time, along with constant headache and a new symptom, stuttering. I have never stuttered in my life.
blurred vision, eye pain, flashing lights in eyes, muscles weakness (started in right arm and leg and now involves both arms, hands, legs and feet), spasticity in feet and hands, involuntary contraction of muscles, spasms and cramps (fingers, arms, legs, feet, toes), twitching muscles (legs, arms, face, back and trunk of body), RLS ( have had this problem my whole life), partial numbness, tingling, buzzing and vibration sensations in arms, legs and back, pain without cause, burning, itching and
I questioned my neuro about this and she said this is very true that early stages of MS do not show O-bands in some MS patients (along with all that other MS panel stuff you are speaking of!). It can take up to 7 years for O-bands to show up, according to the reading I have done. So be happy to not be stuck in Limbo and to have a diagnosis - it might not be one that you wish to hear but it is not the end of the world either.

Hi - MM Swelling and discoloration are not commonly found in MS. Urinary issues and phantom itching are. Have you had MRI's, blood tests etc?

Yes, MS can show up at any time and the neurological symptoms are often severe. Everyone's MS is unique, but more often than no MS symptoms show up on one side or the other rather than both, meaning your left hand will go numb but not the right hand. What are your doctors telling you? Have you seen an MS specialist?
Great advice Jackie! Sometimes I'll get on the MS forum and look for people like myself who are being told no, not MS and looking for answers. I tell them about my story and to come visit us Lymies over here and about you specifically!
Hi, What tests have you undergone? Are you taking any treatment? Your symptoms could be because of a neurological disease like MS or nerve compression, they could also be due to thyroid dysfunction and diabetes. Fever with night sweats indicates a chronic infection. Please discuss these possibilities with your treating doctor as it is very difficult to make an exact diagnosis without clinical examination and test reports. Take care!
I know no two MS cases are alike....however maybe we can take this time to list our symptoms. I'm just curious how we all differ OR how much we are alike!.....
I am not on any medications for MS except anti-depresants. I have terible itching around my eyes and on the MS narcoms it has a question about it. Have any of you experienced this? And what do yo do about it?
I have had several MS symptoms since July of this year 2011. I have had urinary retention, urinary frequency, fatigue, numbness in hands and feet, crawling sensation on my arm, itching, rashes, right hip pain that has gotten worse over the last two years. I also have twitching all over my body. Sometimes this is seen by other people and other times I can only feel it internally. I also have an increased amount of "twitching" when I lay down to go to sleep.
It is a drug that is mostly used as an antidepressant, but also helps with nerve problems. It seemed to help my itching/ stabbing pain 100%!!! It’s great that I can be mobile again but the numbness hasn’t gone away. I also do not like the idea that the doctors do not know what is wrong. Another worry I have is that you can not take nortriptyline when you are pregnant or breast feeding.
I have recently developed a problem with nerve induced itching. It started about 3 days ago with a headache several days prior that was atypical for me along with itching in my chin area. It quickly developed to itching & sensitivity to my entire body. I am waking up in the middle of the night with my whole body's nerve system going haywire like as if I had been given an electric shock.
Unlike my other symptoms which are only on my left side the itching occurs on both sides of my body, pretty much head to toe. It reminds of the itching I had after surgery when I was taking a painkiller. I am not on any medications right now. I thought that maybe my laundry detergent was bothering me, but that wouldn't cause my head to itch (it's driving me crazy!) Have any of you experienced this?
My mri of spine showed 2 bulging disks, everyone was quick to blame all my symptoms on the disks but neuro said that the disks would not cause all these symptoms, he blamed it on anxiety. My symptoms were gone in 3 months and soon after I had pain my eyes, sharp, dull pain behind my eye and it felt very scratchy for a good month. I went to the ophthmalogist and they said my eyes were just fine. Soon after the eye pain was gone.
Wisdom Tooth, Vaginal infection and a mild chest infection (one after the other through Feb) Experienced pain, tingling, shakes, flushing, numbness, pain and itching from waist down, skin itching generalised, sore tongue, tongue coating, itchy throat, tickly cough. Had bloods taken - results were normal. March - blood spots on skin, itching, developing anxiety over symptoms, painful joints and tendons. Bloods taken - normal!
Others are itching, stabbing pain in scalp, light sensitivity,facial pain,lancinating pain like in one finger,someone said paresthesias--also dysthesias,menthol feelings all over--I'm sure there's more to this disease, but we're sure getting there! ARG!
MRI showed several small spots that were dismissed as small blood vessel aging stuff. At the time I was experiancing most of the classic MS symptoms found on the National MS soc, site. While jogging, the muscles in my left ankle suddenly stopped working causing me to trip over my own feet and fall. I had pretty bad fatigue on and off after that for a year or two and could not run very far without my legs turning to rubber at which point I had to stop or go down.
I attributed this to having a child but realized it is a symptom of MS. I have recently started having pain like stiffness in my calves and ankles into my feet and I have EXTREME stiffness especially when I feel stressed in my neck and shoulders. I also see floaters several times a day and sometimes flashes of light.

Many of your symptoms do fit MS symptoms but there are many things that can mimic MS. So sometimes the diagnosis process is a long one eliminating other causes etc. Best wishes with your tests, keep us posted on the results, try not to get too anxious although sometimes this is difficult as it can make things worse. Take care, Udkas.
