Have you ever had hypersensitivity to light pressure?

Have you ever had hypersensitivity to light pressure?

Lately at night I have this feeling of pressure on the tops of my feet. I can't fall asleep if anything is touching them. It isn't pain and I'm not sure if it is both or if it is only one and then my other foot feels left out lol.

I had a Neurologist say that he was hesitant to prescribe steroids. He also said steroids do not shorten a flare, just makes things more bearable.

Has anyone experienced symptoms that hit suddenly?

Has anyone experienced symptoms that hit suddenly?

I was putting away the dishes and talking to my husband no problems. I turned around and boom. Totally numb on my right side, vertigo and some vision loss. It lasted about two days and then back to my MS normal. Thanks for sharing.
