Thought I would ask here instead of consulting Dr Google - he’s not very helpful and is forever sending me on a wild goose chase!
I have only recently been dx with MS so am still getting used to all of it’s little ‘quirks’. I am very aware that not every physical problem I ever experience will be down to the MS, but I’m wondering if this is.
My lower back on the left side is very painful. It feels sort of like nerve pain and seems to also affect my left leg. If I put weight on my left leg it’s very painful and doesn’t want to support any weight.
It’s an aching pain that intensifies with movement, like if I bend down. But also hurts when I sit and lay down. It almost feels like it needs to crack or something, but nothing seems to help.
Sorry if this is all as clear as mud, it can be so hard to explain pain.
I’m wondering if it could be sciatica and conversely if it could be MS related? Any advice/experiences would be very much appreciated.
