low back pain

Does low back pain or pass back problems have any relations to MS....I have had back problems for years and noticed today the back pain was so much better and I actually felt good today.

Cause of back pain could be anything...may be the age factor, at least in my case.

I read something recently that said that more people with MS than might be expected have back pain. However, unless you have neuropathic pain in your back, I don't think MS can cause back pain directly. They said that MS can cause back pain indirectly by messing up your gait and/or your posture thus causing back pain over time.
