Hi, I'm new here and have poked around for a few days. I have a specific question about a pain symptom. I have not been diagnosed with MS - have clear MRIs of brain, cervical & thoracic spine, but my primary doctor suspects MS while neurologist didn't give me much information, I'm going back in early November for a follow-up.
Symptom list (not all symptoms, but most) in order of appearance: neck tension & severe migraine for decades with the following symptoms starting 8 years to 1 year ago: unusual sensitivity to cold (especially feet), excessive/stinky sweat in left armpit, pressure point pain (sleeping/sitting), urinary frequency, muscle spasms (left side), disorientation with surroundings, unusual sensitivity to heat (especially head/trunk), low vitamin D, left shoulder/arm discomfort, spasms/bone pain in face, daily fatigue, noticeable slouching toward left side, urinary/bowel urgency, tingling in neck and left shoulder radiating to arm when using arm with burning pain around scapula, left foot/leg spasms/pain that increases with activity, intense shooting pains that come and go. I also have weakness on left side of body (on 0-5 scale my score is 3).
My question is, does pain with MS increase when that body part is being used or after being used, or is MS pain only random?
The burning pain around my left scapula radiates when I am doing anything in front of me, even typing instigates it. I am doing a second full round of physical therapy, but don't see it helping with that. Looks like the physical therapy will only help me be able to hold my shoulder in place better.
