    I recently had to go to the ER again on April 25th because I could not get my pain under control and my neurologist told me to go there to get the pain under control because obviously I was having a flare up and we had already tried the steroids.  Again, yeah again, I was told by 2 different ER doctors that MS doesn't cause pain, I said "all you need to do is read the research on MS" and one of them said "I'm not going to argue with you".  Yet he ended up admitted me into the hospital for intractable back pain because he could not get my blood pressure down or even my pulse rate.  I can not believe that they are not teaching doctors about MS yet, after all there are almost a half a million of us just in the USA!

    Yeah I know I am replying to my own post LOL, because I'm just wondering why no one has reponded to this?  Am I the only one who has experienced this?

    No you are not alone, I have low back pain that has become constant and a daily struggle what I will not endure any further is being dismissed with a script for hard NARCOTICS THAT DO NOT RELIEVE MY PAIN!  You have to find a Dr. that has compassion that truly wants to help you. I think I have finally after 1 1/2 years of daily pain at least have a game plan to try and resolve the pain not just put a bandaid on it. I too have had horrible care in the emergency room but there job is to get in and out. Find a good doctor, that will listen and find the cause not just write a script.

    Hi!!! I also have a good deal of pain. At least I think it is alot. Most of mine is in my arms and legs, but I do have alot of pain in my lower back. It is hard for me to figure out what is pain from the MS and what is pain from normal everyday stuff. I work in the Aviation field, so everything we do is a physical activity. It makes for a very long and painful day. I haven't had to go to the ER yet because of the pain, but I have come home and taken pain killers like it was going out of style. I swear if they make a PEZ dispenser for advil I am so getting one! LOL! I hope that you are able to get your pain under control. :) I had to explain to my regular doctor what MS is and what it does to my body. Its amazing that they don't know, or they think that they know since they are the doctor and we obviously don't know what we are talking about. Well good luck! I'll be praying that you are in less pain.

    Now here you're talking about MS PAIN which is totally new concept for me. As a student of medical study i like to write down some main points for reminder. However, I want to know about bestessaypoint.com but i found whole website is really good and valuable.

    Hi, I want you to know that you are not alone.  I have A LOT of pain from MS every day.  In fact I see a pain specialist for treatment.  My pain is mainly in my legs and lower back.  Though I also have a vertebrae defect and migraines so I see him for those issues as well.  But he never makes me feel like my MS pain isn't real.  Neither does my Neurologist.  Both are wonderful physicians.  It sounds like you need to do some doctor shopping. Maybe if you'd had some preventative meds you wouldn't have ended up in the ER in the first place.  If you want to talk about this more please let me know.  I understand how frustrating it can be when people underestimate your pain.  I've dealt with that for various issues most of my life.

    Hi 12 Trika,

    When I was diagnosed with MS in 1982, two different Neurologists told me what I might
    expect ( I had asked for a prognosis), but both concluded, " but you won't have any pain."
    They lied!  MS hurts a lot...MS hurts all the time, and I get angry that no-one prepared me for this.  I am very grateful that my current Neurologist does know that MS causes pain, and attempts to help treat and prevent it.  I don't use the steroids anymore, as I am now in Secondary Progressive, but I do take Baclofen to lessen the back pain, tremors, etc.  I
    also take mediacation to try to control the " hugs" and the hermittes syndrome...I do Tai Chi,
    Yoga, and gardening....flowers....I dig, plant, nurture and enjoy....I still have pain....but not so much...hope you feel better!

    Home teeth whitening kits are safe but you need to follow the instructions carefully and ensure whatever product you use is medically approved. Watch out if you have very sensitive best teeth whitening kits too, as some products can feel more abrasive on them.

    I have experienced MS pain and I know how hard it is to do your day to day things. The only private tours in Amsterdam thing that has helped me deal with the pain was the painkillers. And doctors are clearly against taking too many painkillers too.
