I would say try pain killers if you can take them and carry on using it as much as possible. You do not want it seizing by not using it, but you do not want to over work it either. Give it a couple of days and see how you feel, no sudden movements a gentle stretching may help.
Good Luck!

@bonang1975 , it’s usually caused by bad posture. So, indirectly it’s caused by MS. However, I would recommend some gentle stretching. Just remember to stop this if it causes pain.

Here’s just one video, demonstrating some simple stretches:-

@bonang1975 @stumbler is correct, as always 😉 Personally I get awful lower back pain & it’s caused by my terrible walking, (ms spasticity), & forever leaning on things. When really bad painkillers do help as this is ‘normal’ pain as opposed to the neuropathic pain in my legs which is caused by the MS. If the pain in your back is not constant the gentle stretches when not in pain will Only help & as above stop if these causes more pain!!

I’ve recently had treatment (yesterday) for a spasm in my Psoas Muscle (connects base of back and goes found the front of the hip and down the leg it’s affected my back, my hips, my knees and my walking. After 1 treatment at Berkshire MS Therapy Centre it’s a lot better already so I’m hoping to be bouncing around like a spring lamb soon 🙂

The acupuncture physio chap – strangely after one session of having needles inserted in my shins, ankles, stomach, shoulders forearms and hands what I loving refer to now as my ‘asshole muscle’ because it has been one for the last year seems to be relaxing.

I have a lower sore back since my MS career began. it can be centred or can move to left or right. Caused possibly by the walk or possibly by the nervous system been under so much stress, but im not a doctor its just my guess…..
I find Tiger Balm excellent to help reduce the severity of it. This has worked better than any pain killer or medical rub for me. ……………..stay strong brother…..

I have a pain that wraps around my side down to the lower back. I have been to my GP and neuro about this and they both said they can’t figure out what would cause this. My neuro said it could be a MS symptom. I had a relapse Saturday the whole right side of my body went numb. It was starting to get better when it got worse Monday. So I am feeling hot, buzzy cold pain on that side right now and not feeling other problems. My neuro has me on oral steroids, he said it was just a mild relapse. Potter
