Still working on diagnoses, positive MRI, negative LP. I have a appointment with nuerologist tommorow who is a expert on MS. Just curious if anyone has increased pain with exercise. When I use treadmill I end up with extreme leg pain and muscle twitches. I 'm torn because I've heard exercise is good for you. Would appreciate feedback.
I, like you, have a positive MRI, and a negative LP. I am still classified as probable MS. It is my understanding, as well as my experience that exercise causes me pain and a great increase in muscle twitches. I hope this helps.
Thanks for your response. I've been dealing with this for 3 years. I ignored it for two afraid about the diagnoses. Thought maybe ALS. To much knowledge(RN). The summers are a killer. I'm hoping maybe tommorow I'll get more answers. A repeat MRI would be helpful. I also had a positive lymes but the Dr's decided it was a false positive. To many symptoms, fatigue, IBS, prickly sensations. My husband says Dr's are to busy now to work up the hard cases. So I'll have to be my own advocate.
Although I have yet to be diagnosed with MS I am still sitting in the probable limbo. I have all the classic symptoms and I also have tons of leg and lower back pains. Especially when I do much excersise or am on my feet for too long. I also have a sister who is going through the very same issues with a few exceptions. Being a nurse at a nursing home and a waitress she is on her feet all day and has extreme pain. She has not been to the neuro because they have been dealing with her seizures up to this point. It will be interesting to find out what the end result might be for many of us still in limbo.
