Symmetrical Symptoms.....?

Hello....I would say for about 12 months I have had both feet tingle (always both and same time ) and at times my both hands also tingle ( again same time ).  I feel almost spaced out ( granted I have been having a nasty sinus infection ).  Good health and work daily, etc.  Just curious if this sounds like MS or something else.  No real other symptoms other than hands and feet tingle and also the brain fog almost pressure feeling.  40 year old male.  I appreciate everyone taking time to read and reply.  Have a nice week all.

Peripheral neuropathy is the type of medical issue that causes a symmetrical pattern in both hands and or both feet, MS more commonly affects one side of the body but when an MSer has issues in both sides the issues are not symmetrical or a mirror image.

Sinus infections can cause brain fog and a pressure feeling so it would be more consistent with a sinus infection than the cognitive issues that happen with MS.

Hope that helps......JJ

If you haven't done so already, you need to see your GP and get some tests done to determine what is causing the abnormal sensations and then you'll be able to start a medication or treatment that would best suit your situation.

Good luck.......JJ
