    Hi everybody,


    I am 28 year old mom of two young kids. I have been suffering from severe knee pain for last six months. Its chronic burning itchy pain on front of my knees. Its not deep pain and it starts from a little above my knees and then radiates to all on top of my knees. It seems as if the pain is in the skin not deep inside.

    I have had all my blood tests,x-rays and now finally an MRI, but nothing could diagnose the cause as all results were normal.Has anybody had this kind of pain? Can I be helped with this pain? Please reply if anybody has some knowledge of it.

    Hi Renu,

    You do not mention, either her or in your profile, if you are awaiting an MS diagnosis or not. However, I will assume you are.

    One type of pain with MS is neuropathic, a type of pain that has no apparent cause.  For example, your knee may hurt even if you did not bump it. This is the nature of MS.

    I recently saw a question written by an MSer who had a burning, itching sensation starting around his knees and moving up the leg. This sounds like a match. There are several types of treatments that work for neuropathic pain. The best solution is to talk with your doctor to come up with a therapy that works for you.

    I hope I answered your question. Let us know about the solution.  Good luck.
