Help!! I think it is MS but I don't know??

Hi I am a 22 year old female and I just had my son 5 months ago. About 1 month ago I began getting pains in my joints and in my muscles. I get sharp needle like pains in my shins, forceps, back, thighs,knees and in the arm where they would draw blood. I also get extreme migrains and blurry vision. I am not sure if it was caused by giving birth or what it is?? I will not hurt at all and then all of a sudden I will get excrutiating pain where I could drop to the floor. I feel that I am way to young to have these kind of problems but I know they are not normal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi,
I agree that you are too young to have this much pain! I also agree with April that you might want to check on the fibro board. Your symptoms don't sound like MS as much as they do fibro. But I could easily be wrong - everybody's MS is unique.

Best wishes,
Julie

Apriltones and Kristlazaidi,
I am curious to know,,when you were in labor,did you get an epadural?(spelling?)You know the spinal IV to numb the pain of delivery?I am no doc,I was afraid to get one with my kids,but if you both had one,I just wonder if that would result in leaving symptoms or cause any side effects?Wish you well,
Dessell

hi
Do you get tingling and/pr numbeness anywhere?
Have you been tested for an infectious disease like Lyme?
