I have started having problems with my left side. From my shoulder down to my elbow and on to my wrist. Movement hurts and I gasp if I move my arm the wrong way or use it for much. I also get a sharp pain in my arm between my shoulder and my elbow. My husband thinks its tendonitis...but with all my other things, I don't know, does this sound familiar to anyone?
Bambi, are you diagnosed with MS? If you aren't, then it's quite possible you've just strained a muscle on that side. If you are, then you're possibly experiencing some spasticity. It usually feels like a strained or very sore muscle.
Right now I'm having a lot of trouble with my right elbow - feels like tennis elbow. My back is also giving me trouble. The pain is such that I do gasp if I use it the wrong way.
I have the Exact same thing going on. I was recently diagnosed with Fibro, but seriously don't think I have it. I don't have the "11 pressure points". Which is weird, since they dx'd me, right? EBV, high ANA, etc. Not Lupus. Not RA. Now I'm reading about MS symptoms.
Late last year I woke up itching. Like Crazy! I developed dermographia, but in the 3 weeks that I had the extreme entire-body itching, no Dr could find a reason. No allergies, no skin disorder. NO treatment helped. Until I treated my H Pylori--which can cause itching. But now I still itch from time to time--nothing like the madness of before (which took me to Urgent Care four times, ER once, and finally put on Valium to decrease the anxiety.)
In any case, I found these exact symptoms of itching, and now my exact symptoms of this arm pain, here in the MS forum. :( My doc think I'm a hypochondriac. She's gonna go through the ceiling when I see her in a week if I mention MS. :(
