Does anyone experience a numb tongue and a tingling sensation on roof of mouth?

not me - as far as central stuff goes, that would be higher up on the spine than anything I have going on.
any neck pain? other signs/symptoms?
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

Hi "No dx and scared," and welcome! I take it from your screen name that you're worried you might have MS. So relax, take a deep breath. I've had MS for at least 40 years and I'm still working full-time.

I'm not sure what other issues you're concerned about, but the first thing to know is that there's not a single symptom that's specific only to MS, and that each of us has a totally unique list of symptoms. Combine that with the fact that many (or most, or all) of us generally have other issues along with MS and no matter what weird and unusual symptom you come up with, someone here will have it too.

That doesn't mean it's necessarily an MS symptom, but invariably one of us here at TiMS will have it too. :smile:

I've had a tingly tongue (usually only half of it) for short periods of time, but I react to foods, vitamins, supplements, meds regularly with hives, tingles, etc. Plus, I also have HNPP, which means my peripheral nerves are just as tingly, trembly & fragile as my Central Nervous system, so even my neuro says there's no way to identify what's causing any of my many symptoms.

You've found a good place to research and ask questions, but we're not doctors and we come up with some pretty unique, unverified opinions. :smile: I like that people are looking "outside the box" for new resources, but keep in mind they're often our own ideas.

Good luck and keep asking questions!
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)
