Hi ya'll,
   I have a question regarding the pain from a bee sting. I just want to know if people whom have ms, does their pain hurt more than someone else whom does not have ms. Or is there no correlation.
   I have lots and lots of questions. Been sick off and on since I was 19. I am now 36. Crazy symptoms. They originally thought I had Lyme or MS. Testing didn't show to either. But we all know how hard testing for both of these is.
  Oh yeah, my symptoms were usually better when pregnant also.
  I got stung on the bottom of my foot. The pain got worse instead of better for about 14 -24 hrs. It hurt. I mean badly. I have had 3 children naturally. This was the next closest thing to the degree of pain. It was completely not normal. I know it may sound like nothing. But theres no way a bee sting can hurt to that degree for that long. And I am a tough cookie.
  I have had trouble breathing, pain, spasms, feeling like my body is shutting down (weirdest one happens after eating usually, but  it's like a paraylsis from breathing). I don't know how to explain. Scares the absolute hell out of me. And  doctors act as though I am crazy. Each time it has happened I have dehydraytion symtoms. Such as having to urinate like a drunken mess. When I have not even had anything to drink all day. I had just woke up  not long before. Also, after these episodes I have leg cramps.
   I have been to every doctor under the sun. So I am coming here.. Oh and I j=had a positive western blot. Positive per the cdc too. Then they did another test and sent it to Mayo Clinic, it came back negative.
  Any help or thoughts would be MOST appreciated. Thanks !

Hey katc,

We cannot diagnose you but I have to say that whenever something wierd happens to me I know it is MS and generally it goes away after a bit.

I would say that for me I am definitely more sensitive to pain since I have MS - bumping or knocking fingers and toes is excruiating but pain has been one of my main symptoms these last 13 years and was also for my mother who had MS too. I agree bee stings are super painful and can you believe that there is a remedy for MS where people have dozens of bee stings every day!!!!! Not me. But everyone is different so perhaps the pain is not too bad for them??

I stopped breathing automatically and had to remember to breathe & it is scary. It went away after several months and never came back - hope yours does too.

Trying to get a diagnosis can take ages, try not to get too stressed if possible and eat as well asyou can - avoid fast food and processed food as much as possible.

Good luck
Have had relapsing/remitting MS since 10 yrs old. Secondary/progressive since 1995. Baclofen pump since 2008.
