@cedelle, is it lower back pain? My neuro-physio showed me a stretch that sorted me out. If appropriate, shout and I’ll explain it.

I was just going to ask about pain. It goes with spasticy?
Is pain always related to MS?

Physical pain usually comes from bad posture/gait putting pressure on other parts which are being over-worked or stressed. A Neuro-physio is best placed to diagnose that problem.
We can also get neuropathic pain, like burning or stinging, for no real reason. This is a result of the Brain and nerve endings having their messages compromised.

Thanks Stumbler. I Think that when some pain appeared in my patient legs is due to position. Changing it, pain goes. She have teraphy 3 days in a week.

@kerrylousie, that suggests to me that you may need to perform some stretches to extend the muscles and keep them a bit more pliable.
Have a word with your MS Nurse and see if you can get a referral to a Neuro-physio. These guys are more specialised than a standard physio and will be able to tell you what you’re doing right, what you’re doing wrong and suggest some exercises to address the problem(s).
