Sorry for the VERY long message..
I’ll start this off by saying I have no idea if this is related to my MS but figured it might be a good idea to see if others have ever dealt with something similar. I’m fairly new to the MS community – diagnosed with RRMS in 2018.
Lately I’ve been having issues with my hip joints, particularly at night when I’m trying to sleep. For reference, I sleep on my side (usually). I’ve tried putting a pillow between my legs, tried sleeping on my back with a pillow under my knees and neither worked. I continually woke up in the middle of the night with severe aches/pains and would take two Aleve’s – which sometimes work and sometimes do nothing.
I’ve thought it was due to too much exercise, so I’ve lowered my exercise regime and took out all high impact work. I’ve also started to incorporate daily hip mobility sequences.
I’ve thought it was my mattress, so I’ve attempted sleeping on the floor with a yoga mat under me — I’ve since purchased a memory foam mattress and am awaiting delivery. Fingers crossed this helps.
But. Recently I’ve been having numbness/tingling/aches/pains down my entire right side. My ankle, knee, hip, wrist, shoulder. So now I’m starting to lean towards it potentially being MS related.
Has anyone dealt with severe joint pain as a symptom? If so, do you have any recommendations on how to manage it – preferably not medication, but I’m also curious what medications might help. I’m desperate and have been sleeping horribly for around a month now.
Any information is greatly appreciated! 🙂
