Ive not been feeling to well for a bit now, i'm tired, i ache all over. im having pains in my legs. burning and just feeling strange.
Ive seen an orthopedic about joint pain and bad knees. but my knee x-ray and my mri scans fine. but he thinks my knee muscles are pulling to one side making my knee cap grind. my elbows hurt and tingle too. Had blood test for arthritis but everything's fine I'm 25.My pains and tingles are different every day and i have foggy brain days too. i thought it might be fibromyalgia. The pains in my knees and legs started first. I'm quite positive person so I'm open to what people say without it upset me. does ms start with leg pains?x thank you x
Based on my limited knowledge, MS generally doesn't present that way.
I do understand though, because about 12 years ago I was diagnosed with a subluxation of the patella. I have it on both knees, but my left was way worse than my right. I had successful surgery and my left knee is now a lot better.
Subluxation of the patella means that either there is a bone deformity and/or the muscle pulls the kneecap to one side, making it pop out of place. I happened to have both the muscle and bone deformity issues.
thank you. i don't think my knee cap pain is anything to do with my other aches and pains as the docs said it does not sound connected.my right one is fine and when i have tingle pains and burning its hurts more then my bad knee with the knee cap problem. i had a bad knee like 6 months before all this other stuff started. its just nice to ask somebody what knows im not being rude when questioning there ms. xx
It appears your MRI benchmark tests have not indicated ms. We also know when you google almost any symptoms, ms comes up 99% of the time
It is often a long and hard road to prove ms, many mimic diseases have to be ruled out first, and your tests so far are not indicating ms. I'd suggest a neuro to rule out any other problems and just maybe fibro meds might help you
We know how hard it us to be where you are, many of us could just substitute our situations exactly where you are!
Hang in there, you will find out eventually but be patient, it's hard but we've all been there. Do we think you have ms, we don't know as ms presents itself differently for each of us. I spent almost 30 yrs chasing it before I got my dx, and of , now I don't want it!!
Ms is a disease that attacks the nerve coatings and causes chaos, sometimes you are fine and sometimes you are not, but it's a slow moving disease usually. Do some more intense reading if you still think you have it and a list of which ms tests you've had, be honest with your doctors, they are the ones who work with you. Minnie has also given you some good advice.
yes im going to go back to my doc, as the orthopedic couldn't help me,What ever it is its started slowing.
Im very thankful that i can ask people without them being cold or say 'why ask us when u need to ask ur doc'
Ive seen not very nice comments on the pages. I think its helpful to talk to people.
i know people cant tell me whats up. its just nice a ask for advice. its only early days so, what symptoms you have might be different to me. xx
Have you seen a neurologist yet? An Orthopedic doctor is what you would need for your knee and joints but for tingling, numbness, and other neurological symptoms a referral to a neurologist is the way to go.
