I was just diagnosed in May with MS. I have suspected it for a while being my twin sister was diagnosed 6 years ago.
I am wondering how many people here have tattoos and if anyone else has experienced phantom vibrations?
Last summer I got a tattoo on the top of my foot signifying my sister being diagnosed with MS 6 years ago and my walk across Spain for the Camino de Santiago that happened only a few weeks after she was diagnosed. It was definitely a trying time in our lives to be separated. The tattoo is a reminder we need to trust our own two feet to get us where we need/should be....granted now that I am also diagnosed with MS, it is hard to trust my own feet sometimes. But at this point, even when I couldn't feel them during my relapse, at least they still worked.
When I got my tattoo, I could feel my tattoo vibrating for a month afterward. If I was at work, it would make me want to take off my socks and shoes to make sure it was healing properly. Of course everything was fine and there didn't seem to be any reason why I could feel that phantom vibration. It was really bizarre. It really made be question if I had MS then. I probably should have trusted my intuition, but like usual I didn't want to think about it so I pushed it aside.
I tried to google it and couldn't find anything about it online. I plan to get the tattoo expanded to include another MS ribbon for my diagnosis. I am wondering if I will feel that phantom vibration again.
Has anyone else experienced anything like that?
