This is my first time on here. I am now 52 years old and I was diagnosed as having non-symptomatic MS about 7 years ago. During an MRI (for unrelated issues), I was told that I had a fairly large brain lesion that was indicative of MS. I saw a neurologist, and the MRI was repeated 3 months later. The lesion did not show any change in size/shape, but the neurologist felt very strongly that I indeed had MS although I was showing absolutely no symptoms of the disease. Seven years later, I still am symptom free (I think) and visiting the neurologist on a yearly basis.
During the past week I have been having a lot of muscle pain in my legs. Last week it was in my butt muscles and upper thighs and lasted about 4 days. Yesterday I began having pain in the calves of both legs. It feels like the kind of pain you might have after an intense exercise session. I haven't been doing anything out of the ordinary that might explain this. Could this be the on-set of more serious symptoms? My neurologist has instructed me to let her know immediately if I began to have any unusual/unexplained symptoms.

Hey Half-full,
I am glad you found us.  Welcome to healingwell.  I do indeed think it is time to call your doctor.  You could be experiencing symptoms from your MS diagnosis.  I hope it passes quickly and you can get back to baseline/normal again.

I have no lesions on my soul and so I will live with no limits.
