I was diagnosed 2 months ago. All of my MS symptoms arte sensory. The majority is in my feet. THey tingle and buzz all day. It comes and goes from severe to very minor. It's worse when I am tired or on my feet alot at work. My MS attack started with waking up one morning feeling like I was walking on glass and pins and needles feeling in my feet. Sometimes the buzzing feeling in my feet goes up my legs. My neuro told me when the attack passes that some of these feelings might still remain.

Thank you so much for replying, its certainly nice to hear others views and makes me feel a little less like I am going crazy. I was diagnosed 21 years after the birth of my second daughter and have mainly the sensory symptons but my feet are now an ongoing thing on a daily basis. Its very hard to explain symptons to a Neuro what you can feel and they can't see!!

[QUOTE=april1848;3858803]Welcome, Wissa. Feet tingling is one of the many sensory symptoms I have--almost all of my MS problems are sensory. I'm not sure if you have MS, but even if you do, it may be wise to make sure you have no circulatory problems.

My feet, and other parts of my body, start to tingle really bad when I'm extremely exhausted, stressed out, or really hot. Once you figure out what triggers these feelings, you can attempt to avoid them. It's easier said than done, but I just do my best. Sometimes 12 hours of sleep will get rid of all my funky sensory symptoms.[/QUOTE]

Thank you for your reply, yes as you can read above I have had MS for a while now. The tingling is definately associated with the heat and often I am throwing my feet in an out of the bed to try to cool down. My Neuro has put me on 1 tablet a day of Tegretol, have you had anything as such.

[QUOTE=popstarrdiva;3858441]Hi there;
Welcome! I am in the limbo stage. I do for sure though have RSD/CRPS (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/ Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) I know that people with MS can have burning, tingling sensations in their feet, but did you ever hurt yourself before it started? Bump your toe, bruise yourself sprain your foot? RSD can come on from the smallest thing and it is uncurable. Not saying that this IS what you have, but just to be aware of it. Dr Shulman in California did a study that suggestd that people with MS have a higher chance of developing this than the general public. I am just trying to get the word out there so people know.
Take care[/QUOTE]

Nice to hear your thoughts, sometimes I feel that maybe its easier to put the symptons to MS rather than looking further, but from what I have read from this site and others there is certainly a pattern of MS sympton

[QUOTE=MSJayhawk;3858189]Welcome to the board. Do you have MS? Tingling feet can be a harbinger for a multitude of possible problems- MS is just one possibility. Do you have circulatory problems or diabetes or a family history of either of them?

When my feet tingle the most, it is usually when they are too warm. Do your feet tingle all the time or is it temperature related? When you are standing, do you get the same tingling feeling?

Test different methods to determine the possible triggers, this can help your doctor determine a diagnosis quicker.[/QUOTE]

Thank you for my Welcome to the board, yes temperature is definately a trigger, I have been known to sit with my feet in a bucket of cold water to stop the tingle out of frustration, it lasts for a while and then returns and yes when I am standing I still feel the tingles, its a real nuisance!!!:mad:
