Post Postherpetic Neuralgia and posiable MS

I have been diagnosed with PHN and now going for tests for MS. I have been having problems with my bowels. Can anyone tell me if they had ANY bowel problems besides constipation?

Has anyone had problems with their arms, as pertaining to hot or cold pains going down them and hurting in elbows. I also have weakness in my arms but can do things but then it gets worse. I keep thinking it may be PHN.

I'm new at this and would really appreciate some responses soon as posiable.

Thank You.

Kay

You could have PHN, but it could be nothing to worry about at all.

I have had the pains you have described, as well as many other wierd sensations. I looked at PHN as possibility, but it didn't seem to fit the bill exactly. I also have thyroid problems, and tried to link it to that. Nothing definite there either.

Anxiety caused me to have many other symptoms, and I have heard of many others who have unexplained symptoms because of anxiety. Plus, irritable bowel syndrom is also associated with anxiety. I went on anti-depressants all the symptoms stopped. With the exception of some numbness and occasional twitching.

See a rheumatologist (sp?) and a neurologist. They will help in letting you know if it's something to worry about or not.

I would imagine what you have is not life threatening, but it's always nice to hear it from a professional.

Best of luck. Try not to worry or self diagnose.

Kim
