This is fun.
Pain on scalp, spreads like the electric shocks on my foot, but I feel the tugging there and elsewhere, and pain. Very like the neuralgia I had years ago. Tugging there too. I get tugging on my hands sometimes.
Painkillers no help but I've read up on Valerian - I sleep absolutely rubbish, probably the perimenopause but also during the New Moon lunar phase, I average 8 hours across three nights. Valerian apparently helps with nerve pain, ( A source of GABA) as well as being good at reducing anxiety and also getting you off at night. I'm not on any other meds, rarely take brufen or paracetamol because they never help with my painful symptoms, and the migraine I get goes with aspirin, and that's rare too.
Took some after an hour of scalp hell and it seemed to work. Perhaps I expected it to ...
Hi all ,
New to this forum , have not been diagnosed with ms and basically have been wondering if this is an ms symptom.
Was driving home from work about 6 weeks ago and my middle , third and little finger tips on my right hand started to hurt as if they were bruised.
About half an hour later the exact same finger tips on my left hand started to feel exactly the same. It has lasted for about 5 weeks and then started to rectify but is still there a bit . Its just my fingertips and not my whole fingers and just the last three on each hand.
My question does ms present symmetrically like this?
I've noticed recently that if I knead dough or use a paint brush, I get a really painful sensation in my hands. Apart from headaches and back pain I'm not used to pain with MS.
It usually stops after a while. I can only liken it to shin splints.
Is this 'spasticity'?
Just in time for Easter...*joy*
(Feel the sarcasm)
for the last five days, I have felt like I have a headcold. my head feels heavy, I am tired and am dizzy, particularly when I move. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I have no other cold symptoms so I am thinking it may be a symptom of MS
at what point do i know if something is MS related.
i dont know about anyone else but i tend to assume any problems i have are not related to my MS and just hope they go away.
at the moment i am having terrible problems with sciatica type pain.
i started about two weeks ago with a pain behind my right hip. just a dull ache initally. this week it got worse and spread across my lower back until yesterday it started to resemble sciatica down the back of both legs.
should i be concerned that this is MS related and speak to my MS nurse or just keep hoping it goes away.
i know forum users have so much knowledge and personal experience that i thought i'd see if anyone had any idea here frist.
