MS symptoms: Return of My Fingertips



Soon after my diagnosis of multiple sclerosis my fingertips lost their feeling. Differentiating between items in my pocket, holding tiny things between my fingers, and judging the temperature of items became challenging. Years past and I adjusted. Laying awake at night I would wonder if I would ever feel them again. My husband gave me beading kits for Christmas one year with the accompanying comment, “I’ll do the beading if you tell me how to arrange them.” What a trooper he is in my life. Then one day, out of no where, I could feel my fingertips again! Since that time, this has given me hope when other symptoms seem impossible to overcome.
