I have suffered from random intermittent neuropathic pain, is it early symtoms of Multiple sclerosis (MS)?

33 year old female. No diagnosed medical conditions. No medication. Family history of thyroid disease. Current BMI 23. Diet reasonable. Moderate drinker. Social smoker.

I have suffered from random intermittent neuropathic pain in my left upper arm for approx last 2 years. It will occur causing me to clutch my arm the happen a few times throughout the day then not happen again for weeks or months. It happened recently and during an episode my left index finger jerked. I know I should see my GP but would just like to know what you think first of all. Does this sound like early symptoms of MS?

Nop it us not MS
This is probably nerve root entrapment in cervical vertebra caused by disc lesions or spondilosis
You will need an MRI on cervical vertebra to confirm

Good Luck

Hi and welcome to question doctors .com
Does not seem to be MS..
Peripheral neuropathy ..vitamins n B deficiency and carpal tunnel disoders are all possibilities ..cervical vertebrae disorder and anxiety also.
See a neurologist and do not worry

Hi,
less likely to be MS,but cannot be ruled out completely unless you get it confirmed by blood tests.
Vitamin B12 deficiency is the most likely cause.
Get blood tests done.
Start on vitamin supplements
Thanks

HI
LESS LIKELY TO BE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
TAKE INTRAMUSCULAR VITAMIN B6 AND B12 INJECTIONS ON ALTERNATE DAYS FOR ATLEAST 10 DAYS. THIS WILL HELP IN COMBATING THE SYMPTOMS.
YOU WILL BE FINE,DO NOT WORRY.

hello there
early stages of multiple sclerosis can present in this fashion. get blood investigations done.
another possibility is of a polyneuropathy.
carpal tunnel syndromes or nerve compression due to cervical disc prolapse can also mimic these symptoms
