Here is My Question:
I know that "pins and needles" feelings is a symptom of MS, but what if it is a very mild sensation of "pins and needles. Can that be a symptom of MS? It feels like more of anoff and on shooting of pins and needles.
Pins and needles sensation can be intermittent or persistent, mild or intense. Although these symptoms are common in MS patients, they are not all diagnostic of MS or even very helpful in establishing a diagnosis of MS. This is because pins and needles sensations are common in everyday life (limb falling asleep) and in people with other conditions.
