To cut a long story short - 3 years down the line , abnormal brain and spine scan with lesions but normal LP, nerve conduction which diagnosed carpal tunnell and also have developed underactive thyroid. I have foot drop and weakness on my right side and now have very painful muscles in right arm. I can not lift my arm, have had xray which is normal and been given co-codamol but they made me feel weird. The doctor seems to think it is the MS and can only offer strong painkillers. This is really painful and I know MS affects the nerves and muscles but does anyone else have very painful muscles and is there anything we can do for this?. I have had physio but I don't understand how they can be so painful when I haven't done anything to cause this? Any advice appreciated, I feel the GP is not helpful and always feel a nuisance when mentioning all these symptons which I feel must be related, 4 years ago I was healthy and ran the London Marathon.
