I've recently been in touch with a woman who has MS and she has vulvar pain, itching, burning. She also has burning with urination. Is this a symptom of MS or could it be a non related issue?
I am from the Lyme forum and have Vulvar pain, too, and it's a known Lyme Symptom and I know Lyme and MS share many symptoms.
Just trying to help a new "friend"
Any advice would be appreciated!
Those are pretty typical signs of a bladder infection. Has she been to the doctor to be tested? Untreated bladder infections can lead to kidney infections and long-term problems. She should be checked right away.
Vulvar pain, itching and burning are not "known MS symptoms", but bladder infections can easily happen with folks with MS if their bladder doesn't function properly.
