Yep, they "feel" plastic...if "feel" is really the word to use. My hands might better be described as NUMB...except I still can "feel" them, if that makes any sense at all! My skin feels bizarrely plastic or glove-like over my hands, while I'm having electrical "zaps" shooting down both arms...not painful zaps, but more like tingle-ee zaps. WOOT?!?!
Consequently, I cannot trust my faulty skin on my hands to register anything like temperatures or pain...yet they MOVE and can grasp and I can peck this keyboard by simply pushing down on the key until it hits bottom while using my eyes to make sure I haven't typed a bunch of the same letter (like "eeeeeeeeeee"!) with my finger pressure. When I put my hands on my face, my fingers feel cold to touch...most unusual.
I thought yesterday I might be getting a cold as I had head congestion and body aches...turns out, whatever THAT was has settled nicely in my hands and arms. I just hope the rest of my skin/appendages don't develop this plastic feeling. If I DO become completely plastic, look for me modeling the latest summer wear in a store front near you! I'll be the mannequin in the window that's cursing without moving my lips...LOL.
Anybody ELSE ever have THIS bizarre MS symptom (at least I "think" it's MS?!?)? Do tell...
