Barbarann,.. I hope you stay on top of your breast cancer. Don't let everything be put down to MS, although the back and hip pain is most definitely consistent with MS. Is your back, hip and leg worse when you first wakeup and get out of bed? Does it get better as you move around after getting out of bed? Is the pain worse when you sleep on the sore hip? Please keep in touch with us here.
Sandfly... Sorry you are having problems with hip and leg. Is the pain you are having on the same side that you have most of your MS issues. My right hip and leg and foot are very much compromised and in constant pain. I have dropfoot (also referred as footdrop) in my right foot, which is very common in MS. This can be dangerous as I can stumble and fall if I catch my toe. Just recently, my occupational therapist gave me a small foot brace for my right foot that fits inside my running shoe and under my jeans. It is strapped around my lower leg about 4 inches above my ankle and is quite inconspicuous. It keeps my toe from dropping and therefore helps me to not stub my toes.. It may help you to feel more confident that you won't trip and fall. Good luck and let us know how are are doing.
