Re: Onset of Excruciating pain in lower back. Could this be M.S!
Hi. Im sorry you had that experience, sounds horribly painful!
Just so you know what you described isnt a typical MS thing at all. We dont get that sort of pain....MS is a disease of the central nervous system, and although it affects the spine, what you described isnt how its affected....also with MS stuff, it doesnt just magically dissappear over time leaving nothing behind to diagnose..
There are so many 'standard" MS symtoms, none of which you mentioned...that this doesnt sound neurological -but rather muscular. Only the MRI is really going to point you in the right direction....Im sorry you have to wait, there is no wait to do it privately?
I hope it doesnt return...and that you are on the mend!
RRMS- dx 05
