Multiple Sclerosis numbness and tingling can affect any part of the body, from hands and feet to arms and legs and even patches on the stomach or back. The cause of Multiple Sclerosis numbness is the damage that the disease does to the central nervous system, and subsequently the nerves that run throughout the body and into the extremities. As these nerves become damaged, they fail to do their job properly, becoming unable to send or receive messages from the brain. This doesn’t just cause Multiple Sclerosis numbness, but also nerve pain, tingling and other physical symptoms. Multiple Sclerosis numbness isn’t just an uncomfortable and annoying condition; it can also cause secondary symptoms, such as mobility problems or an inability to carry out delicate and precise tasks, depending on which parts of the body are affected and how seriously.


Treating Multiple Sclerosis numbness tingling


Unfortunately, Multiple Sclerosis numbness tingling is an irreversible condition. You may have days where the numbness or tingling caused by the condition doesn’t seem as bad, but you will never get rid of it and there is no treatment, as yet, that can repair the damage that Multiple Sclerosis does to the nerves. However, there are plenty of drugs and therapies that can help patients who are struggling with Multiple Sclerosis numbness to deal with the symptoms and to carry on living a normal life. Multiple Sclerosis numbness is often accompanied by tingling and neuropathic or nerve pain. This can be treated with medications called anticonvulsants. They are usually given to epileptics and work in exactly the same way, no matter which condition they are prescribed for. The antidepressant amitriptyline has also been found to help ease neuropathic pain and help in gaining relief from Multiple Sclerosis numbness.

If the Multiple Sclerosis numbness face has become quite serious, then the condition can also start to have a negative impact on the patient’s mobility or their ability to carry out basic, everyday tasks. Multiple Sclerosis numbness can also affect the extremities such as the hands, feet or legs, in these cases; physiotherapy and occupational therapy can not only help to relieve the symptoms, but can also help the patient to cope with normal life, despite the problems caused by Multiple Sclerosis numbness.
