Phantom Wedgie

Hi everyone!

I was diagnosed with MS December 21 2014...in the ER. Walked in with what I thought was A pinched nerve and sciatica and walked out 3 days later after steroids with a chronic illness.

Luckily my symtoms have been mild since then but this October i had to have an emergency appendectomy and since then some of my old symtoms are starting to come back. One odd symtom is a feeling that I have a wedgie but when I reach down to correct, my underwear is in place. I have had some pelvic issues this pass month with trouble going to the bathroom and odd buzzing down there. I went to my Gyno to make sure i wasn't assuming one thing and it be another. Everything came back clear.

I'm pretty sure its nerve related but has anyone else had this? Im relatively new to all this so I'm not sure.

Re: Phantom Wedgie

WakeUplilSuzy,

Welcome.

Weird nerve sensations can affect MSers endlessly. While I have never had a wedgie sensation, I have had other sensations which my MS Specialist attributes to my MS. Symptoms will often cycle through with us. I know that has been true for me. Some symptoms cycle through regularly while others are rarer, but they will eventually repeat nonetheless.

Keeping a journal of your symptoms can help, at the very least, it will provide you with a memory of your symptoms. I summarize my symptoms every 6 months for my appointment time.

Thank you for sharing with us.

Hi WakeUplilSuzy,

Abnormal sensations are perfectly normal when having MS, these are referred to as sensory symptoms and yes, they are nerve related.

Your wedgie sensation is probably one of those normal abnormal sensations thanks to MS.

Many women who have MS tend to freak out the fist time they experience buzzing/vibrations in the girlie parts. I have had buzzing/vibrations from the waist down as well as in the girlie parts.

I am betting you have spinal cord lesions. Spinal cord lesions tend to be more symptomatic than brain lesions and cause symptoms from the spinal cord lesion...down. Spinal cord lesions can cause bladder, bowel, and pelvic issues, problems with mobility as well as other symptoms.
