Traveling Pains

Has anyone ever had pain spots that seem to travel? Behind the shoulder blade, in the chest, one side...then the other...then the ankles...so on...

Re: Traveling Pains

Hi, do you have MS?? Its not common for pains with MS to travel, being that the pain is usually from nerve damage; however if the nerve damage is still happening (ie Active lesions are forming) then it wouldnt surprise me to have new pains..
More importantly, is there something going on with you that ISNT MS related? Thats what I would be looking into...and, if you are having active problems, are you and your doctor trying different MS meds, trying to stop progression?

Re: Traveling Pains

Well, I was given a "probable" rrms DX back in 05. You can see my many other posts around that time for more specifics. Short version, 4 lesions on brain, 2 c-spine, 2 O-bands...yadda yadda. In hospital for 2 weeks. No steroid treatment at that time. Insurance has always been an issue, therefore no CRABS or any other meds. And, no MRI since then. Just no back on Insurance, will be hitting up a new neuro soon.

That said, the pains only travel in the sense that, they always show up in the same spots, just at different times, and may be pain free for months, than boom, sharp pains in those areas again. Always the same areas though. under shoulder blade, right and left sides, back pain, joint pain, muscle weakness and cramping, more than usual currently, especially the calves.

Re: Traveling Pains

Well, with what you wrote additionally, anything is possible. You definately need to see not only a new neuro- but one who specializes in MS.

Lesions can be from anything....migranes, prior head trauma, infection. Only specific lesions are MS lesions....but if what you have are MS lesions, then you MIGHT have enough lesions and symtoms to qualify for MS treatment. A good MS doc will help you navigate thru all that.

As far as the traveling pains- muscle pains arent usually MS; nor are joint pains; however, MS is a painful disease for some and the pains can manifest in many ways. I have extreme pain in my hands and fingers, almost like arthritis, its from permanent nerve damage in my brain, which presents itself in my hands. I have horrible back and shoulder pain BUT thats not at all related to MS, and instead is caused by a buldging disc in my spine...so, not everything is MS related.

Until you can have an updated MRI and until you can start having other things ruled out with blood work and tests, youre going to be in this place we call limboland. Does anything over the counter help like Tylenol or Aleve? Reason I ask, is if it does, this is probably more muscular then MS ...

Best to you. I hope you find resolution soon. And, a good doctor. Shout out for help here if you need recommendations. Someone from your part of the world might respond.
