I'm so afraid

I've been having some tingling that started about 2 months ago. It's usually right above both shoulder blades, at the base of my neck. It just tingles for a few seconds, and then goes away. I actually find that it happens more when sitting at the computer for some reason.

Also, I will have small random tingling patches on my legs that will again just last for a few seconds. No numbness, no pain. And it wont last long...it will go away within just a few seconds. And it will stop tingling if I touch that spot.

Now I feel like my arms are weak....but they are not. I just got down on the floor and did 10 push ups with no problem. But they just *feel* weak, but they are really not.

I'm so afraid that I have MS. I have two daughters, ages 3 years old and 5 months old and I want to be active in their lives. I worry about this a lot.

I never wake up numb or tingling.....it actually NEVER happens at night or in the mornings. It usually begins a few hours after waking.

I had a CT scan and an xray of my cervical spine. Nothing showed anything. About a month ago I was having little twinges of pain all throughout my head. That's why I had the CT and X-Ray. It showed nothing. Not really headaches, not really pain....just twinges all over every 30 seconds or so. It was weird. But that lasted about a week and then went away. This tingling began a few weeks before the head twinges and has continued even after the head twinges went away.

Does this sound like it could be MS?

  • Doesn't sound like MS to me. Tingling anywhere in the body means that nerves are being pressed. Make sure the chair you are using is good enough to support you while working on the computer. Always check out these kind of symptoms with a doctor. Many years ago I had tinglng in both hands and both feet. It seems that I injured my spine when I slipped on the ice. After many weeks of wondering what was happening I finally went to the doctor and he put me in the hospital. I was in traction for a month to "open" the spine and I haven't had a problem since. I'm not sure they do that now, but you still need to see a doctor to determine what's causing the problem. See an orthopedic surgeon.
