If it keeps cranking up and getting worse, of course you may need to talk to your doctor to think about steroids or something, but hand wringing over MS symptoms when I actually have MS is not constructive, of me anyway.

I'd have these numb areas on my feet and I'd go running and say "I'm going to pound some feeling back into my feet". It worked for a long time. My feet aren't numb anymore, but that was the first sign I had in my lower extremities. I had similar times in the 5K also and would KILL to run one again.
might be helpful to you to look into Inclined Bed Therapy--there is a thread here on this.
Also, the CCSVI thread might interest you.
