Hi, I’m really sorry you’re in so much pain, have you been to your GP, or do you have a nurse, yes it might not be MS, you really need to get it checked out, it could be sciatica, I had that once years ago, but mine didn’t go around my middle, don’t be in pain, we have enough of that with MS, good luck to you, X

Hi, it does sound a bit more than sciatica…but it could be an intense attack. I`ve had sciatica and it is really debilitating.

I used to get severe lower back pain and it was caused by poor posture and support, during the day, but manifested itself at night. So for long enough I thought it was my mattress. I changed them but the pain was still as bad.

I finally got help from Wheelchair Services, when they changed my chair seat and back cushions.

I dont know what else to suggest, except to ring your GP.
