I've found out the hard way that with the numbness in my hands and feet I don't feel things as much when I get hurt. Recently sprained my ankle again. Its black and blue but doesn't hurt . Also burned my fingers on the oven rack a few weeks ago and again hardly felt it. Just like a diabetic needs to keep a close eye on their feet so do we. Also our legs for sores. MS is different for everyone and not everyone will have neuropathy this bad . But I've learned my lesson. Hugs all, D.
