Pain and MS

Posted on May 04, 2018

Whether it is joint pain, neuropathic pain, or the MS hug, multiple sclerosis brings pain that is an intrusive part of life. Learning tips and tricks to manage pain is extremely important.

On MyMSTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with multiple sclerosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Pain is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about pain:

My pain is so horrible I can't sleep, stand, or lay down. Even therapy is hard because the pain is so severe.

Yesterday I had my worst fall ever. I slipped down between the bed and the wheelchair and was left in an unbelievably painful, contorted, pretzeled position.

Great Day yesterday went to the Zoo, but today I am paying it for overdoing it today.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about pain:

I'm getting a cramp type feeling in my back is this part of ms or something different?

Any tips for flying for someone who is in a wheelchair and in pain?

What type of pain do you get and where do you feel it?

Can you relate?
