I am a 54 year old woman. I have been waking up unable to move my knees or elbows. It varies and does not happen every morning. It is also very painful. I usually need someone to help me bend the joint efected. After getting it to move the pain almost always immediately stops. It is very scary. Can you tell me what this may be? It started a year ago but recently has been more frequent.

Multiple Sclerosis? What other symptoms should I watch for? What type of Dr should I see?

I would suggest starting with your Primary Care Physician (PCP). Your PCP can evaluate what is going on and refer you to the appropriate specialty.
As far as Multiple Sclerosis: MS is not a disease of the joints. Has a Dr. suggested MS to you?
