Pain in my hips and thighs
MaryCFNP posted:
I've just been diagnosed within the past few months with MS. It's thought I've had it quit a while. Just thought i was clumsy, falling more than the usual klutz, and dragging my right foot in a 5K in which my daughter complained. More, but here is my question: does anyone have deep hip and thigh pain, bilaterally - deep ache. Doesn't impede my walking, but when I sleep at night, it tends to wake me. Is this part of the whole thing? I can't find any specific pain except neuro pain. Help.
mmthlvr responded:
Yes, I haave hip pain that wakes me up at night. They did xrays to check for arthritis, it was negative. They gave me cortisone shots thinking it might br bursitis, negative. I have not been diag yet, I'm still in limbo.

Like you they have no explanation for the pain. I'm really sorry your dealing with this. Have they started you on any CRAB drugs yet?

hackwriter responded:
Hi, Mary,

I've had thigh pain at night as well. I can attribute it to muscle spasticity caused by MS, and sciatica. I take Baclofen for this, it relaxes the muscles and keeps the pain at bay.

There are other kinds of meds that might help you, too. You can ask your doctor about those possibilities.

BlessedwithMS replied to hackwriter's response:
Hi Mary,

I have deep throbbing pain in thighs and hips. Those were my first symptoms years ago. I also take Baclofen and Neurontin. I don't know what is due to what, but the combo works for cold feet and itching as well.
BlueGolden responded:
Neuropathic pain is associated with MS. I have pain in both legs and feet, The MS Specialist said that the pain is the result of having MS. Gabapentim is a drug that can help lesson the pain.

Good Luck,
