i have two questions that i would like help with please. Does anyone suffer from :
i have a problem with bowel movements in as much as it takes me a long time to empty, im not constipated but it feels like my muscles aren't strong enough to push it out and it takes some doing (sorry but need to explain as best i can) i do have muscle weakness in both arms and legs so is it possible to have this kind of muscle weakness related to bowels ? its usually bowel urgency i get but this has changed over the last couple of months.
also, im getting a lot of joint pain after walking or even just carrying a light shopping bag. this happens all the time and if i push myself too far its accompanied with shaking of the relevant limb.
do any of you get this or is it something else entirely?
im still not diagnosed so need to be looking at other reasons for the symptoms apart from ms as i dont want to think of ms and nothing else. if it is typical of ms thats fine though (hope that makes sense)
hopefully some of you will know what i mean.
many thanks in advance.
