I have just been in Hopsital for 5 days following sudden headache and odd sensations in my arms and legs. Admitted for possible subarachnoid haemorrhage. CT, LP, MRI and angiogram all clear for a bleed. (LP not conclusive as had blood in but they were happy following the angiogram).
Anyway since discharge my legs have been causing me real problems. They ache all the time. They feel like I have climbed a mountain when i go up stairs and I have to sit down. I get stabbing pain in the side of my knee. The paracetamol and naproxen don’t seem to touch it and it’s exacerbated when i lie down to sleep.
I don’t think they looked at my CSF iN terms of MS and no lesions have ever been seen on MRIs of my
Today I had to walk for about 15 mins each way for an appointment and stand at a railway station. Standing was more painful than walking at the time. My legs are now becoming unbearably painful from my hips down to my ankles.
I have 2 questions:
- is this problem familiar to those with a diagnosis of MS? Is it the more you do the more they hurt?
- what is the best way to relieve the leg pain? Is it rest, a bath, stronger pain relief. I would really appreciate any help as my legs are really hurting.
