tingling sensation throughout body

Hi, I am a 56 year old woman in excellent health. It seems nearly all my adult life I've gotten tingling sensations throughout my body at times. I could tie it to taking too much aspirin, drinking wine or whatever. These sensations are also accompanied by tinnitis. I have no loss of balance or memory or anything like that. The past few months the sensations are getting more constant until now they are 24/7, along with the tinnitis. I am on no meds and take only vitamins.

I went to a doctor who seemed to think it was the claritin I was taking at the time. I stopped taking it but it didn't do anything. He ordered a general blood test but said it was fine and I haven't been back to him.

I always thought these sensations were probably something everyone had until I began reading that they could be symptoms of MS or the like, which scared me. However, reading about MS, I don't have any of the other symtoms (symptoms) people talk about.

Any idea what this could be or where I should go from here? Can a blood test taken for health screening show anything significant here?

Thanks

Not to scare you but MS can have vary vague symptoms. No 2 people have the same symptoms. For instance, I have numbness and tingling and incontience. I have recently been Dx'd with a moderate hearing loss. ??(MS related) Tinnitus, cognitive problems and abnormal gait at times, and visual disturbances along with extreme fatigue, that never goes away. I sometimes will get a new different symptom that is temporary. There are people with MS that may only be fatigued with mild numbness and tingling and there are people in wheelchairs. So you never know. Better to be safe than sorry. See a neuro!!!

Thanks for your comments. I have had this tingling off and on for years and never really thought much of it until recently when it became more constant and intense. I have researched it and came up with MS as one of the causes also. I am currently not at home so when I return I will see my dr and get a consult. I hesitated to get hooked up with a neurologist tho as I didn't want to start taking meds with side effects.

I am into holistic health and am also going to try other remedies such as Chinese Medicine. I've had good results with other things with acupuncture and nutrition.

I know it's good to check out the official diagnosis but on the other hand, if I was officially labeled as having MS, not sure it would help me mentally.

Have you ever tried any alternative therapies?

Phremer is a massage technique that incorporate sti, stm, and crossfiber in a way that can relieve and sometimes reverse the symptoms and conditions of MS and related illnesses. Just a thought.
