Is there anything "typical" about MS tingling, (does it occur in one area, multiple areas, bilaterally, unilaterally, for one second, hours, days)?
Tingling in MS is "typical" in the sense that it is a very common manifestation of the disease. The location of the symptoms reflect where in the nervous system the demyelinating disease is found (i.e., which sensory pathways to various areas of the body).
The symptoms often fluctuate in the severity and duration of symptoms. Individuals who are heat sensitive may find that hot environments or activities can bring out old tingling sensations, which improve when they cool off.
