Tingling and Multiple Sclerosis
Upon waking in the morning I have tingling all over my body reminding I have MS, what is this?
Tingling is a very common symptom in people with MS. While it does not typically involve the entire body, this is certainly possible. This can occur with certain medications (most commonly topiramate used to treat seizures or migraine headaches), other medical conditions (hyperparathyroidism), anxiety or hyperventilating. I would talk to your doctor about this symptom and see if he or she has an alternative explanation.
