Staring into space or Day Dreaming look

I would like to know if anyone else has had this symptom. I have had it for most of my time with MS.

You look like you are day dreaming/staring into space and you hear buzzing in the ears, eyes get blurry and face gets hot.

An LDN question, that's been bugging me for a while..

Hi there,
I'm not particularly an LDN sceptic (I'd take it if I had PPMS,after all there's nothing else right now), but there is a point that's been bugging me for quite some time.
