i spoke a while ago after my mri said i didnt have ms yay! but the neuro did say i had me and arthralgia-i thought he was taking the - well you get the picture - i started looking online and its real! i have the same pain and symptoms as arthritis w/out the swelling. so there you have it,if you are ever told you have arthralgia dont get up and slap the poor guy he is telling the truth. i am now on nsaids but my gp now wants to change my pain killers from morphine to something else.dont know to what yet but to something different.
