Hi Shannon....Yes right now my worst symptom is sore muscles. Mine are all over though. It feels like I went 10 rounds in a boxing match! In fact they have been bothering me so much I signed up for an exercise program and am going 3 days a week. I figured if I was going to hurt all the time I might as well have a good reason for the muscle aches. It really comes and goes, sometimes warm baths help. I try not to take too many meds like aleve or tylenol but sometimes I just have to. I know exactly what you are feeling........hope it gets better for you...hang in there......Deb
so this is not just my imagination??
Ever since the numbness left - still comes and goes, but quickly - I have had pain from my neck down to my feet....almost feels like muscle cramps/spasms. At first I thought that it was all in my head because I'm still a little off-balance from the diagnosis, but this morning I felt like I could barely get out of bed. Then I saw this post and was so thankful! It's horrible to have little to no information from my docs. I have muscle relaxers, but they aren't helping. Am I just a wimp, or do your muscles hurt this much??
I've done what Deb is doing, going for exercise. I've been going for over a year now and it really has helped with the soreness and the spasms. I go first thing in the morning (3 times a week) and am pretty much shot for the remainder of the day, which is frustrating. Some days I just can't go and some days I get there and barely go thru the motions, but all in all I have to say it has been beneficial. I think I have a natural aversion to exercise, but can't blame the ms for that!
i get knots in my muscles really bad,,, thats been happening bad now for a couple of yrs, and the flexall helps that,,, or i get the rite aid brand it works really well to and have my daughter or hubby massage it,,, and i get charley horses bad too! i have started taking vitamin B12 and that has seemed to help!
I have to hand it to all of you who exercise, I know how hard it is to get started
and finish for that matter.
You are right yoga would be a good one to do. I actually bought the yoga workout kit some time ago.
I really would like to yoga, Its just hard using up all the energy for it.
I have 3 kids. 13, 11 and 9 yr olds.
I feel like i have to use my energy on them. You should be proud of yourselves
for exercising, most healthy people don't even exercise.
Thank you all for the quick responses.
Shannon , try to make a little time for exercise your kids will know why your doing it , even if you just try some stretching in the morn ahd evening to start with say 10 mins each for a month.When you fell the benefits it makes it worth while,
you dont need to go mad even when your standing i would look down ahd reach my arms hard down for 10 secs 3 or4 times ,just wee things can make a lot of a difference
