Goosebumps are a sensory reaction and sensory reactions CAN be a part of MS....if they are coming from body temperature changes, it would make sense, because the damage in our brains, can affect the bodies ability to regulate our temperatures....which can cause Goosebumps on the skin.
If its happening without temperature changes, it may or may not be a MS thing. Not everything is, which we sometimes forget...
This is something you should be talking to your Neuro about- and the muscle spasms are something that he can prescribe something for to reduce....but he may want to run another MRI to make sure of what is going on, from a MS standpoint. Report it to your doctor and see what he says.
i have been taking b-12 shots for several years now. i know that nerves don't regenerate but i would think if my symptoms were caused by a b-12 def they would not get worse or spread. i only had pins and needles and numbness in my hands and feet to begin with now it has spread to my face head even my ears. it feels like i have little bugs crawling in them. i could be wrong but that doesn't make any sense if it was only a b-12 problem. it get a shot every2-3 weeks
If you have been getting regular b-12 shots, then you should not have a b-12 problem unless your body has stopped absorbing the B-12, but you would have other- graver- concerns if that were the case.
If you can find a neuro, have them assist you in completing an application to the MS Association for their MRI assistance scholarship so that you can have at least an MRI to ascertain if you have lesions which could be a causal link to your problems. I realize you do not have insurance and it is difficult. There are different funding programs out there and i would encourage you to use them so that you can get some resolution.
