    Did you ever get a reply of any type to your post? I have been experiencing the same thing you are for the past week. It has mainly been in my left arm and leg but today my right leg seems to be starting too. It is really worrying me and the first thing that I thought of was MS.

    Did you receive any explanations for your leg pain? Did you go to a doctor and receive a diagnosis?
    Reason I ask is I am having severe aching (like the flu) in my legs. Sometimes both at once, sometimes just my left. Sometimes when both are aching, I get pain in my hands. Have no idea what it could be. Would appreciate any ideas.

    Hi all...

    Many things can mimic the symptoms of MS...numbness, aches, pains, limb weakness, etc. It's really important to make an appointment with your healthcare professional and go from there and see what's wrong. It could be something very benign and easily treated....or it could be something better "to know now" rather than later and get treatment for that, too.

    The worst thing to to do nothing, then stress and worry about it. Even if it's MS, thats ok....more is known now how to treat the illness today, than ever before. We're all lucky in that regard. :-)

    Best wishes. Sherry
