Here is My Question:
Hello. I've been feeling hot with increased tingling in my fingers. It all started a week ago when mild flu symptoms started. I took allergy medicine and I'm better now (flu wise).
Is feeling hot and tingling a sign of an MS attack? What should i do?
You could be experiencing a pseudo-relapse or the emergence of symptoms (particularly positive sensory phenomenon like tingling) in the setting of an infection. Urinary tract infections are a common cause but common viral infections can also be responsible. Please see your doctor to be evaluated.
