Hello

This is not typical of an MS presentation, but could be very rarely.

This would much more likely be something like magnesium deficiency.

Or, hyperthyroidism.

OR, calcium or other electrolyte imblance.

OR, disc disease of the spine.

Go to your doctor or the ER.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
