Hi and welcome,

Sorry i've not responded sooner, it's summer holidays over my side of the world and i've just got back online...

Mild tingling in your abdomen is pretty vague symptom wise, in a women it could be many different things eg bowel, ovarian, bladder etc, its unlikely to be anything serious if that's all you experience and unlikely to be a sign of a neurological condition like MS. I'm sure by now you've seen your GP and have a much better idea of what it's more likely to be....

Hope that helps.....JJ

Thanks for the reply, my Neuro is out on vacation so I can't see him at least for the next two weeks, my GP gave me some medicines which doesn't seem to work, now I have mild tingling in left and right leg and sometimes in my left hand do you think it might be something (I might have anxiety , I keep googling symptoms not sure though ) reply when able
Mild tingling is still vague symptom wise, depending on the type of medicine it could even be a mild sensory side effect but in regards to being a sign of MS, symptoms that are bilateral or symmetrical are more typically a red flag pointing away from neurological conditions like MS from being a likely causation.

Q: "...do you think it might be something (I might have anxiety , I keep googling symptoms not sure though ).."

A: Mental health conditions like Health Anxiety, conversion disorder etc are something you should seriously consider getting an assessment to rule in or out IF you are googling the particular medical condition that your anxious about and you soon after start experiencing the same or similar symptoms you're reading about.

Hope that helps....JJ
