Hi everyone,
I think I can post almost anything here and someone will know something about it, so here goes.  I have been having those wonderful electrical shocks up and down my spine, now going around my ribs.  Well here goes for the strange one, two nights ago I was awaken several times out of a sound sleep because of a pain in my left breast.  It is so sensitive that the slightest touch or bump makes me see stars.  It is a little red across the side also, but this is not where it hurts.  A friend who is a nurse told me she knows someone who gets those electrical shocks and the pain travels around like this and she ends up in the hospital on steroids and strong pain meds.  I don't really see the connection and am going to try to get an appt with my PCP today, but figured I'd see if anyone else experienced this.
Thanks for all being here.
 
Debbie

Hi everyone,

Well, so far this "problem" of mine doesn't seem contributed to by MS, I saw the PCP today and she hopes it is cellulitis.  If the antibiotics don't work and my skin erupts, then it is shingles, and I guess it could be caused my immune system is not up to par because of the MS.  I am praying the antibiotics work, and checking my breast every so often for blisters.  The "girls" never got so much attention HAHA, but I have heard how painful shingles can be.  Wish me well.

Debbie
