I have been at the beginning of what I had hoped was guite a mild relapse for the last week or so (worsening stability, speech issues, wobbly eyes etc with no underlying infection)
To be honest, I wasn’t too worried (I know ) but today I started with intense pain in my right hand that felt like someone had trapped my hand in a door. It’s a bit better now but at worst I couldn’t write and typing was really difficult.
I have never experienced pain from my MS - just general “embuggerance” ( as Terry Pratchett describes his Alzheimers) I am now a bit scared so I am now going to ask a (probably stupid) question.
Has anyone had pain like this because of their MS?
How long does it last for?
What painkillers help? Do painkillers help?
Although I am quite “good with pain” the idea of a long bout of real pain like this is worrying to say the least
