Hi there, I have a symptom but I dont know if its ms related. My arms ache when trying to lift things. Even a cup of coffee or a book feel like a ton weight. Sometimes I just cant do it at all.
I walk up my stairs with the help of a bannister either side but last week the pain made me fearful of falling and my arms also felt weak. It gets better then worse.
Hi my name is Moray and I have had Ms for 10 years as I was misdiagnosed, and since being diagnosed three years ago with MS, I have been given many forms of drugs, none have helped since the side effects were awful, Copaxone injections, Painkillers, Antidepressant's. At the moment I am taking nothing as the doctors don't seem to know how to help anymore. I am disabled and rely on 24 hour care and in constant pain and very depressed. I rely on my partner for everything including help on the computer as my hands and arms are numb and painful, #I even find it difficult to use my mobile.
I don't know where to turn anymore and am so depressed and in pain, Can anybody help or advise.
I am a very positive person and have fought cancer but this has me beaten.
I just want to know if someone has any experience using a certain strain of marijuana for pain relief?
One of my friends got me to try his vape with cannabis infused juice but we have no idea what strain of marijuana was used for it.
It really gives you that relaxing feeling and somehow comforting. I don't know if it's the punch of the highness that marijuana gives but it does work.
So I started reading article and news about medical marijuana strains and how would you put it to work. One of them is http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/hindu-kush/.
The potency of the strain when it comes to pain is very high. I don't know if this is true coz I don't really care with the names or strain back when I was young and smoking it.
I would really like to hear any feedback from you guys. Thanks In advance
Hi all I haven't been on here for a couple of years as for the last 2 and a half years not a single relapse or problem. However the last week and a half things have got awful but I'm unsure if it's ms related or not so wondered if anybody has suffered with the same problem. It all started with a numb patch in the middle of my back then my fingers and wrists became so painful ( worse of a night ) like joint pain or cramp that was absolutely excruciating leaving my hands stiff in claw shape then it has spread to my shoulders like the day after you have been carrying heavy heavy shopping bags to the point where I can't move the top of my arms to lift my hands high . Now it has moved to both ankles and knees so I can hardly walk or move my arms as its so painful . I have no idea what is happening but no I'm in ridiculous amounts of pain and can't move my arms or legs properly
I am looking to hear from any fellow "monster" sufferers who experience back pain. I hope to find out what different ways MS affects people regarding pain in their back and upper thighs.
I have recently been experiencing severe pain in my lower back and sometimes in the top of my legs. I am unsure if this is down to my MS or something completely unrelated
