Hi am a 50yr old woman was diagnosed with ppms about 5yrs ago but had the signs for 30+ . Take both gaba and amytriptlyne but for the past 3 weeks have got an intense burning pain in my right shoulder what comes in waves especially with movement would describe it as a blow torch taking my breath away ! Was wondering if it was the ms or my age ! A anyone any ideas to ease it !! Thanks !!
Hi DBird, the nearest I’ve had to what you are experiencing was trigeminal neuralgia - incredible pain shooting down one side of my face into my lower jaw - as if someone was using a hammer and chisel on my jaw. Fortunately and with, the help of strong pain killers from the GP it passed after a week or so. I’m no medic but I suppose it’s possible that you are suffering from something similar. However, as my MS Nurse and Consultant say - don’t assume that everything is MS related and get things checked out by your GP.
Thank you hank dogs spoke to ms nurse and gp it is new ms sympton and changed my meds from amytriptaline to norotryptaline ! Just hope they work ! At least got a good night sleep last night.
