-- Ms. MS
It’s starting again. I feel the beginnings of sunburn on my left thigh. But I know that’s impossible. My legs haven’t seen the sun in months, so how can I have a sunburn? Simple: I don’t. See, one of the more recent quirks of my MS symptoms is that I will occasionally get a sensation like sunburn on my thighs, usually just the left one, but sometimes it likes to surprise me and attack the right one to keep me on my game J. This really isn’t a big deal in the scheme of things, but it is annoying. My thigh becomes overly sensitive so that the leg of my pants takes on the characteristics of sandpaper each time it brushes my thigh. Again, this is a minor thing, but I have to wonder why at least one of the myriad of symptoms from MS can’t be pleasurable!
