PN or MS

For about ba year I have had the sock glove feeling on my hands and feet and it's now a tingly face.

At night it gets worse and sometimes I feel brain fog.

I am 39 and curious what this sounds like does this seem like MS or PN....more scared

What do you recommend?

Robert, it is a little concerning to think that by talking to me you've picked out the sock glove pattern description i mentioned when explaining some of the different red flags that point away from neurological conditions like MS and that now instead of you identifying your entire face, hands and feet as specifically burning, you are using terminology that doesn't actually single out the burning sensation you are experiencing and you are now changing the burning sensation in your entire face to it being a tingly face.....ask your self how bad is my anxiety, and could I be inadvertently feeding my anxiety and growing my fears by overlooking reading about the common medical explanations and focusing more on serious medical conditions.

IF the answer is yes or even a may be, then i would advice you to seriously consider paying attention to your anxiety sooner rather than later because anxiety will always make what ever situation you are dealing with a lot worse, and it is always in your best interest to be protective of your mental health!

PN stands for Peripheral Neuropathy and there are many causes, most common causes are behavioural so you need to see your dr and find out what it is your dealing with because you are running scared before you have had any tests yet, you honestly may not have anything like what your thinking it could be, so please go and see your dr!

"There are many causes of peripheral neuropathy, including diabetes, chemo-induced neuropathy, hereditary disorders, inflammatory infections, auto-immune diseases, protein abnormalities, exposure to toxic chemicals (toxic neuropathy), poor nutrition, kidney failure, chronic alcoholism, certain medications etc

My brother is 15 years older than you and he still does slalom skateboarding speed trials with his old skateboarding mates  and he does have peripheral neuropathy, he is what's classed as a functioning alcoholic, chronic alcoholism is the cause of permanent nerve damage in his hands and feet, he also has type 2 diabetes which hasn't helped the PN or his ability to stay on his board, but he takes a combination of drugs to deal with the chronic pain, numbness etc and i'm only telling you because life is worth living to its fullest no matter if you have a chronic medical condition or not....

Your answer of what it is or isn't needs to come from your dr so please be brave and make an appointment.....JJ
