It sounds like you are suffering and I am sorry to hear about your pain. I wish I could help but it is very difficult to be able to suggest possible diagnoses, or even the best course of evaluation, without more information. If this is relatively recent in onset, it could be a multiple sclerosis exacerbation. For example, a lesion in the spinal cord could cause the symptoms in your legs and arms, and you might ask your doctor about doing a MRI of the cervical and thoracic spinal cord with and without contrast, if that has not already been done. There are also many possible causes of pain in multiple sclerosis, including damage to the nerves themselves (neuropathic pain) and pain that comes from stiffness (spasticity) or spasms of the muscles. Different pain medications are used for these different types of pain, so it is important for your doctor to try to figure out which type (or types) of pain you have, and then use the correct kind of medication to best control that kind of pain.View Thread
