If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Burning Pain

Postby andre » Tue Feb 24, 2009 1:44 pm

I got a new symptom 2 weeks ago when i woke up. the whole left side from my chest down to my toes is burning( and i mean the whole left side, right down the middle). i also dont feel any coldness on that side. when i touch it with something cold it burns even more. just finished 3 days of solumedrol and nothing has changed. Has anyone ever experienced this? this is my first spinal lesion and im scared it may be permanant. i havent healed very good from my other relapses.(balance, spastic leg).

andre what medication are you on on a regular basis, other than the three days of solumedrol recently? has anything else changed recently prior to the burning symptom coming on?
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

Hi Andre
I've had this burning pain but it never stayed long with me. I have gnawing aching, itching pain down my right side all the time. I take low dose amitriptyline for it and it works very well. It makes you sleep heavier so I take it at night. HTH
