I was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis in December 2008. This is my blog about my life living with the roller-coaster world of MS with a little humor and advice thrown in!

Pain In My Neck

  Does anyone have that one MS symptom that keeps coming back over and over that sends you over the edge??  This week for me it is the pain (literally) that starts in my neck and radiates up the side of my face to my cheek and down my left arm to the tip of my thumb.   And while most symptoms are annoying to me this one absolutely kills me.   It's a burning, stinging pain in the neck with numbness and shock waves that go to my hand.   Such a pain.   I never know if ice or heat is better.  Heat feels better but who knows which is better.

Wrapping my hand with a elastic bandage feels good too.  Since my arm and hand are numb they feel cold.  And the compression helps with the tingling and jarring shock waves. 

Well, that's my whining for the week.  :)
