3 of 18


Numbness (or a lack of sensation in various parts of the body) is often one of the first symptoms to bring a person with MS to the doctor. Numbness can occur in the face, the body, or the arms and legs, and can interfere with walking, holding on to objects, and even chewing, if the numbness affects the face.

Sometimes the feeling—or lack thereof—progresses over hours or days, but it usually subsides on its own.
