Tingles across shoulders, neck and upper back

Anyone else get these?  All other symptoms I've had in the last year have been new ones with old ones not appearing much at all.  This might be another one.  I get tingles, a bit like buzzing but not quite, across my shoulders and neck. Had it twice recently.  Lasts about five minutes.  It's not the shivers.

@Happymama , it's not easy determining what is MS and what is not MS. And, whether or not you should be concerned. But, over the course of time, you will become more comfortable at untangling that conundrum.

The link below should provide some guidance for you. But, if you do have concerns, then contact your MS Nurse and discuss the issue with them :-

A multiple sclerosis relapse is a sudden onset of symptoms that commonly lasts for a number weeks.

I've had them again.  Might be now in an episode.  Stumbler I'm not Dx. Just suspicious.  I've had other new symptoms affecting my walking. What do I have to suffer to get to see a ruddy neurologist?

@Happymama ,it's down to your GP, as your Primary Care Provider, to refer you to a Specialist if they are not able to treat your symptoms. This Specialist may well be a Neurologist.

@Happymama , it's the only route open to you, unless you consider complaining or changing Doctors, which aren't really recommended courses of action.

 

You need a full list of all your symptoms, to pass or relate to your Doctor, and ask for an explanation!

I did last time, all written down and she sent that to the neuro that lied to me..  Lots of new ones, now, and I had a phone conversation with my GP and she said she would look for another neuro as I'm clearly worse.  But that was last year in the spring, before Covid.  If I ring now I'll still be waiting for months, poss years what with Covid and backlogs.  What chance of a Dx before 2024?  Not much.

@Happymama , don't be so pessimistic. Covid-19 is now becoming manageable, so the rest of the NHS is returning to some level of normality.

40,000 ops outstanding.  My GP still only working on phone calls.

@Happymama , life needs to continue, despite these figures plastered in the news.

 

Your GP may be able to contemplate a way forward for you without the need for a physical examination.

 

You just don't know until you try..............

Tingling again, like an old friend. Right between the shoulder blades high up behind my neck.   Not had anything else for ages now.  Here's waiting ...

@Happymama , are you able to identify a trigger for this prodigal symptom?

 

It's the usual suggestions for a remedy, rest and relaxation and why not some pampering too. You're worth it. :wink3:

@Happymama , it's the day after Boxing Day, so we're just about getting through to the end of Christmas! This must be one of the most stressful times of the year for the fairer sex. You ladies make Christmas happen.

 

If things have remained quiet over this period, the you must be doing well. Just New Year to go......

 

Have a good one.

Hi there John.  Christmas was nice and relaxed, thanks!  .  Kids at their dad's Xmas eve till about 11 on Xmas morning, by the time they arrive the table is laid, the turkey is half cooked, the veg are ready and I've had a preprandial sherry or two.  We had quite a lot to drink but not as much as on NYE.  

 

I've come out of the lactulose thing after two years of absolutely needing it which is rather nice.  Only a few random pains in my feet to bother me, electric mostly.  But in new places.

    • Crunchy neck

      As usual, I'm doing the MS or not MS symptom thing, my neck is very noisy. Crunchy and clicky and if I lie on the floor on my front to watch TV resting on a cushion, it is much worse.   It has certainly got worse in the last two years, and I'm going to ask my GP about it, but I thought I'd ask here first.   many thanks   LB x

    • Upper back, neck and arms...

      Morning to one and All.   For the last couple of weeks, I've been struggling.....   In the past it's been my legs that have been the main issue, numbness, stiffness, pain and spasms etc.   Over the past couple of weeks, I've had a pain across my back, between my shoulder blades, neck pain and stiffness, and my forearms have been so very painful too. It's sort of new to me.   Sometimes it feels a little like the dreaded 'hug' but often it's just, what I can only describe as a stiffness across by upper back.....it's most uncomfortable. Anyone else?   I'm seeing the Neuro in early June so I will mention it.....perhaps I'm just getting old and arthritis is setting in !   Scully x

    • MRIs(head, neck Spine)done and dusted...

      I went for them on Saturday.   I went for the MRI scans, arrived early but someone had not arrived so I got in earlier. Lying down was a nightmare and they put a huge pillow under my legs too. But my legs and feet had ideas of their own. They were twitching and jumping all over the place. At one point I got like an electric shock down my left leg and into my foot and my leg shot off the table. I apologised when they came to get me out(and had to be helped up by staff as I could not move). But they said they would make a note of my legs party for the neuro to see. I did not have to have the contrast done so I was glad of that. I was told I should hear something in about three weeks so will keep you updated. Thankyou you all so much for your ongoing support, I would be lost without this site and its members.

    • Neck Swelling?

      HI everyone am new to this site!   I got dx last October with RRMS, I inject copaxone everyday and have had IV steroids three times over the last year.   I have had my current relapse going on for about 10 weeks now and am struggling to get back into work, I was just wondering if anyone has experienced a swelling of the back of the neck along with sore eyes when you move them and extreme tiredness? The swelling keeps coming and going and no one seems to know what it is??   I also experienced the MS hug ouch!!!!   I have tried contacting my MS nurse who is always on annual leave and never available I have seem my GP god knows how many times (the receptionist now knows my name how embarassing) ha ha so I seem to be at an impass and quite frustrated am worried the new symptoms and the prolonged relapse means there is something wrong or there are new lesions somewhere??   Any thoughts on this guys would be of help   Take care   Gem   x
