I developed RRMS in Oct 2012. Comparatively speaking I’m currently one of the luckier ones. My main symptoms are a weak, temperamental left leg and my MS hug.
My hug began as a form of itch that I couldn’t scratch on my back. It gradually came to be a tingling sensation in the middle of my chest and then by Dec 2012 had settled. I’ve had X-ray ECG etc. Since then I’ve had constant pain in the left side of my chest - centred around the ribs. This is 24/7 365. Fortunately it’s not severe but debilitating due to its consistency. It’s especially irritating when going to sleep or trying to stay asleep, waking up or trying to cuddle.
So, I currently take Tec as my DMD, lowish doses of Baclofen and Amytriptyline at night and Paracetamol and Ibuprofen as and when. The only one that seems to be effective is the Amytriptyline at aiding the sleep.
So, if you’ve got this far, has anybody got any other suggestions or treatment strategy that I could try. Obviously I’d consult a medical professional before changing my meds.
