MS Symptoms

My husband has had reoccurring symptoms the last 15 yrs. He has pain in his thighs, back and vision problems (he sees floaters) He has lived with these symptoms for years but they are getting worse. We live in Northern Manitoba a very cold climate. We went to Palm Springs and after 5 daus his symptoms stated to lessen and were gone after 10 days or so we spent 15 days there and he was symptom free for 5 days. We returned home and after a few days his symptoms returned. His symptoms have become severe and he can barely get through the day the pain in his legs are unbearable. He is 50 yrs old and despite his pain has remained very active but hie is finding theat each day has become a misery. I am very concerned and wondered if these could be possible MS symptoms. Thanks for any and all input in advance.

Re: MS Symptoms

Hi Sandybythe sea,,
Maybe the problem is arthritus?The reason I say that is,tho we are all different,,the cold weather makes my symptoms ease up,but still there.Warm weather makes it worse,and I think thats typical for most ms'rs.I have the floaters in the eye,but my eye doc said they were harmless type.I also have Spondylosis of the spine(arthritus) and it can be very painful,if you are worried get to your doc and get checked out and referred to a neuro.Alot of folks here have had symptoms for years before getting dx'd,,so write his symptoms down daily for the doc to better understand whats going on.Wish you and your husband well,Dessell
