    Numbness in hands and feet


    I was diagnosed with MS in 2008 with numbness in my left arm and left leg. I had not had any noticeable relapses since then. About a week ago, my right foot started to feel numb. Within two days, both hands and the left foot felt the same. Now the soles of my feet are really sensitive. When I make a fist, it feels as if my flesh is being pulled back away from my fingertips. Further, I feel as if there is a tight band around my lower chest area. Is this more likely to be an MS relapse, or an entirely new neurological illness?

    Thank you.
