Legs feel cold but achey from my hips to my knees?

I have had a sort of cold feeling on my outer thighs for a few weeks but it’s spread down to my knees now and is quite sore and achey feeling. Is this an MS symptom to anyone’s knowledge? I’ve resorted to painkillers now.

Yes, the sensation of being cold when the skin is not cold to the touch is an MS symptom. A very unpleasant one too! Do see your GP to check for other causes though. I hope it improves soon. Karen x

Oh okay thank you. I thought it must be. I know I must be ignorant but I’m new to all this but I thought the symptoms would come and go and not be ongoing, but they seem to come thick and fast! Happy Easter x
