Is this MS or does it sound like something else?

I am 39, doing a keto diet, lost about 40 pounds, over the past year or so I have had burning and tingling of the face , hands, and feet and only there. So I am freaking out its MS.

Does the above sound like MS?

I appreciate everyone taking time to read.

Hi and welcome,

If what you are experiencing is symmetrical in both feet, both hands and your entire face then it wouldn't be typical for a neurological condition like MS to present and or be the most likely causation of that symptom pattern. I don't know very much about the kato diet but basically any restrictive diet can inadvertently cause depletion of important vitamins, minerals etc off the top of my head i think it's salts like Potassium and magnesium can be a problem often overlooked so you would probably benefit from seeing your GP and getting some general blood tests to see if you are missing something specific from your kato diet.

Hope that helps......JJ
