please help....

For almost 2 weeks now I've been having the following symptoms: I woke up early from sleep, and for an hour and a half I felt the left foot very cold, almost not able to warm up. And this was under the covers. For the whole day, I felt it go from hot to cold, hot to cold. I can't really say it feels numb. I also felt my leg go through a very light tingling sensation, just for seconds. The tingling sensation goes from my thigh down to the ankle, but from the side. Then I would feel some dull pains. I exercise regularly and the day before this started I had attempted this new exercise. I'm 28.

Now I feel the same thing on my right leg. It doesn't feel heavy - just that cold/hot sensation. Actually more cold than hot - as if there's a breeze on it. And moreso from the ankle down. Actually it feels a bit "frozen." But I can move it.

Then I get these throbbing pains behind my left and right side of my head. I think they are migrains since for the past 2 weeks they come and go. I got a hair cut a couple days ago and left the salon with my hair not too wet, but not all dry. I also get this "ants crawling" sensation on my head too, mostly on either side of the head, and not the whole head. But migraines can cause that sensation, right?

I don't have health insurance, but if it's something to worry about I'll find help. But does this sound like something I should worry about?

Re: please help....

Just keep a dairly journal so that if things progressively get worse you have everything documented. It will also help the doctor to figure out the puzzel.
Your on the ms board and alot of us have had symtems for more than 2 to 5 years before they figure it out and it takes alot of testing to get there. The cold ness in the legs and feet along with the tingeling could come for a pinched never in the L- spine.
At this time it's to early to say, Just document symptoms, date, what you did to releive it, how long the sinsation lasted. If you keep a record and things get worst you'll know. That's the best advice I think of at this point,
