Pain question

I'm sure I'm being really dense but over the week I have started getting really sharp pain in my arm and leg that come for a couple of minutes then go away. It's happening a number of times throughout the day. Is this an MS thing or is my body just crap?

FDA on Friday proposed new guidelines that would allow pharmaceutical and medical device companies to market their products for off-label uses, the New York Times reports (Harris, New York Times, 2/16). Currently, physicians can prescribe medications and medical devices for off-label uses, but companies cannot market their products for ...
