I am 24 years old and I was diagnosed with MS about 2 years ago. My problems started with “lhermitte’s sign” - I felt electricity going thru my spine to my legs. I did not have blur vision or double vision (btw since I was diagnosed I have never had them).
I am diagnosed with “clinically isolated syndrome” which is really good.
My only problem is - my legs. I can walk (long distances), I look like a totally health person. But I feel pain and weakness in my legs and also arm muscles. The worst weakness I feel every morning when I wake up or if I sit and work for a long time and then I stand up. I can’t even run. Well I can run - for a bus or tram but after this I got big cramps.
My medication is - copaxone (glatimer acetate) and antidepressants of course.
My question is - is there any medication that may treat my leg pain and weakness? Is there some pain relieve medication? What would you recommend to do? As you can see I am almost “alright” - I have no strong problems with my MS. Just my legs. I’ve told this to my doctor many times but he had never done anything with this.
