Muscle pain question

I have a pain in my thigh that feels a lot like a bad bruise. I kept looking for a bruise to show up, but it has been two weeks, nothing but the pain. Most often people mention entire limbs and such. Anyone else have this?

Re: Muscle pain question

Hey Lilc!

I have that at any given time on either thigh. I thought my CRAB med may be to blame, but after talking it over with a drug counselor and the neuro, we determined it was just part of the MS.

The only thing I have really been able to do to relieve the pain is walk and massage the area that hurts.

I don't know if there is any correlation or if it is just coincidence, but lately I have been using more soy and more veggies, and less- MUCH less - animal meat and as a result (?) some pain issues have calmed down. I've only been at it a week, but I feel the difference in my energy level and sense of well being. My legs have given me no trouble these last few days, which is actually outof what I have come to know as the norm.

Re: Muscle pain question

Ooo, I remember someone saying they felt better after cutting way down on red meat. I didn't eat red meat for several years, started eating it again about 5 years ago. I'm going to try it, certainly can't hurt!
I'm so glad you are feeling better, DJKD!
