I decided to do a separate thread from previous one to see if anyone has this same issue. I was told I have possible MS and am seeing a MS specialist on Wednesday. So even though I am not diagnosed I still am very curious about this symptom I have had for years. For the last decade or so I go through periods of burning in my upper arms and part of my back. When I think back they would last weeks then go away. But I also noticed my emotions or I guess you could say anxiousness was related to it. It didnt have to be a bad stress or bad anxiety. If I got anxious watching a movie or antsy about a situation boom the burning would start. So fast forward to September. Now it does the same thing in my legs. I work with teenagers and I had been doing sooo much better since my episode in September but Tuesday afternoon I got really stressed about that nights event and like a blowtorch was held to my legs it started again. Then they got weak again and sore. The next 2 days they still burned and left leg thigh muscle aches and sore. Today is better. If this is MS, can your emotions or anxiety or stress really cause a small episode like this? Does anyone have this burning sensation realated to stress or emotions? It is so strange and to try to explain it to someone makes you feel a little coo coo.
Yes I have noticed the trigger for my arms and back for years just thought it was so strange I would never tell anyone. Do you have these burning sensations related to stress or anxiety?
Thanks for the input. I am really curious to see what the dr says this week. Yall always have great information. Ok so I want to make sure I understand this right. As I said over the years I have had burning, tingling in arms and back that would last weeks then go away yet to return months later. That is not indicative of RRMS? And the episode i had in September, the symptoms were bad for about 6 weeks and have slowly been better but not all gone. Some days they are worse then others. I guess from the information I read from health websites, they like to say that with RRMS you have an attack and then symptoms go away or back to normal. But I trust information more from people like y'all living with the disease then people writing from medical journals.
