numbness n both feet

Does anyone else suffer with numbness in both feet? My Doctor says this is not my MS. It only will effect one side of the body.
It get worse when I lay down. but makes getting around much harder.

i have it in my toes, but it is because of herniated disk. I believe the involvement with MS is that my core is weak and more pressure is on the spine leading to the herniation. I will get a fusion before too long.

Doctors are full of sh1t. I had exactly the same thing and the Doc told me it was because I was overbreathing and thus Co2 levels too low in my blood. 4 months later - Optic Neuritis attack.

I hope it isn't MS but my advice would be to immediately adopt damage limitation measures including;

Vitamin D - 4000iu or more
Omega 3's - at least 2 grams a day (6 grams of fish oil - NOT COD LIVER)
Zinc - to keep uric acid levels up
Magnesium - balance Ca uptake from extra Vit D
B12 - incase symptoms relate to B12 deficiency


None of the above will do you any harm and won't cost too much
