    Leg Pain/ Arm Pain tingling and arms tired

    I'm a 14 year old male and a few days ago I started feeling like my arms are tired and I feel leg and arm pain. I am so scared that this is ALS. I've had a MRI for head pressure that I have had before and it was perfectly fine. I also have tingling in my feet and hands, but not too frequent. I have been stressing a lot over it. My arms can pick up things and move it just hurts and they are tired and want to stop moving. Could this be Als, MS, or the stress could cause these symptoms?

    What to use to treat loss of energy?

    My aunt has had MS for about 20 years now. She has been treated here in the US and also in Europe. Unfortunately, her MS escalated rather quickly. She's been in a wheel chair for about 10+ years now. She asked me what kind of medicine she could use to help her energy level. She sits or lays down most of the time, so its difficult for her to gain energy. I would appreciate any advice or suggestions on this topic. Thank you for your help. JP

  • Is this possibly not MS-related?

    I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in 2015. Then, I was diagnosed with RRMS the same year. I was told that I no longer have CTS anymore, and my orthopedic specialist thinks it's MS causing the issue. However, my neurologist isn't sure that It's MS-related. I have been on Tecfidera since June 2016. I received a steroid shot in my hand, and it only made it worse. Many medications have not helped either. This is what my hand feels like: As if I sat on my hand. Extreme numbness that....
