Is numbness from MS permanent?

One of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis which may seem innocuous to people who don't live with MS is numbness. Sure, numbness could be temporary due to an acute flair and accompany inflammation. The longer we experience lack of sensation, however, can be sign of axonal damage (“permanent” nerve damage).

Correspondingly, can numbness come and go with MS?

In the most common type (known as relapsing remitting MS), symptoms come and go. These can run the gamut from mild tingling to more severe vision loss. However, MS is tricky. Because so many other conditions can also cause similar symptoms, a hypochondriac could easily think they have it when they don't.
