I have Multiple Sclerosis and I know when numbness is involved there should be concern. In the last 24 hours I have had numbness about by my right knee going toward my thigh with a burning sensation. There is no pain and it doesn't hamper my ability to walk. The burning sensation is not constant. I have only felt it once for about 30 minutes but the numbness has been constant for at least 24 hours. I injected my medication (Rebif) in the same leg two times in a row when I should have rotated but the pharmacist was confident that this would not cause any numbness, just a reaction at the injection site. Any thoughts?
