I was recently diagnosed with MS. But I have had chronic myofascial pain in r shoulder area for over a year. It did not respond well to neurontin or lyrica and had bad reaction to Cymbalta. I was wondering if MS patients are more prone to myofascial problems. I also have Reynauds for like 6 years now, but all my old and now recent tests by rheumatologist are still negative for things like lupus. She always classified me as undifferentiated connective tissue disease (UCTD) My ANA is always positive with centromere pattern. My main new symptom that brought me to seeing my doctor was facial numbness of lips, tip of tongue and chin and after almost 7 weeks it is still there but a bit better. Then my MRI of brain showed muliptle lesions and the LP came back positive for oligoclonal bands. I have posted once before and was so impressed by those who responded on their knowledge and compassion. I am waiting for my appt with the MS specialist which is not till Jan 24th where I will learn more about how to fight this. I appreciate any information on the above questions...God Bless you all....Amy
Hi Amy (I'm Amy too!) I also have myofascial pain syndrome, in the area between my left back and neck. And fibromyalgia. I don't know if this things are related to MS or not though. I was just recently diagnosed with MS too. I'm sorry about your stuff, and really hope you get good info from your specialist. Please keep posting. God bless you, Amy
Another Amy...how nice..okay they probably are seperate issues just wondered...I was hoping it would explain all my "wierd invisible issues" but I guess I will just try to take one thing at a time. Sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis of MS as well. Have you started on any medication? I have been doing a lot of reading on the choices. Well take care and let me know how you are doing as well. I will keep posting as I know more...God Bless you ...Amy
