Does it hurt?

When I was first diagnosed, everything I read said there is no pain with MS. But I did have pain, some intermittent, but pain just the same. Why wasn't there information about it?

Now, it is generally accepted that pain is no stranger to MS. The National MS Society talks about living with MS, and specifically living with MS and the pain that comes with it.

The article covers medicines used for MS pain, other treatments that help manage pain, current research dealing directly with pain. There are eleven types named and described, including types of pain and discomfort associated with common treatments.

So if you hurt, it may be associated with your MS, but it can be treated.
