Hi,

I have started to experience a flare-up of symptoms (tickeling fingers) when I am stressed. It started around a year ago when I was about to move. Since then I have experienced these flare-ups quite often. Fortunately they go away within hours, but I get equally worried every time my fingers start tickeling, which is almost every day now. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I have had MS since 2008, but it has never really affected me, so I am curious as to how normal these flare-ups are.

Hi danishgirl

its quite common for me the tingling hands. Try experimenting by lying down and positioning your head in different positions an hold for a few minutes an see if it changes at all for worse or better

Hi Darren,

Sorry I haven't replied sooner. I was sure I had, but just realized I was wrong. Thank you for the tip and it is nice to know that I'm not alone! I will definitely try the lying down. Should be fun for my colleagues ;)

Hello everyone,

How are you today? I thought I would revive this older discussion to talk about MS flare-ups. emoticon cute

What type of MS do you have? How often do you have flares? Have you noticed if they have increased or decreased with time or with all that's gone on with lockdown?

Good advisor

Although my MS probably became SPMS in early 2013, I still experience a number of "flares" every year!  These can range from simply experiencing my same multitudinous MS symptoms but much more acute/disabling to experiencing new/different ones.  The time scales these flares can last, again range from 3-4 weeks to 10 months.  In hindsight, had RRMS for 35 years before being formally diagnosed of having MS, subsequently have had MS for over 43 years  Feel extremely fortunate that although no 24 hour period passes without experiencing many mental/physical limitations, forever grateful for being able to do what I currently am able to do.
