There is pain in multiple sclerosis, with several categories that can be acute or chronic. My last article discussed neuropathic pain . Today, I am going to talk about details specific to musculoskeletal pain. Our musculoskeletal system -- bones, muscles, connective tissues -- provides our bodies with stability and movement. Musculoskeletal pain, also known as nociceptive pain, can seriously affect our well-being. Nociceptors are free nerve endings that detect stimuli and interpret them as pain. Nociceptors, protected by myelin, are in all types of body tissue except the brain itself. Neuropathic pain is caused by nervous system lesions while musculoskeletal pain is caused by actual tissue damage detected by the nociceptors. Musculoskeletal pain is not caused by MS, but by MS symptoms. Therefore, musculoskeletal pains are defined as secondary pain. It is often made worse by our inactivity, immobility, spasticity, and posture problems. That is, simply having multiple sclerosi...

Definition Anti-smooth muscle antibody is a blood test that detects the presence of antibodies against smooth muscle. How the test is performed Blood is drawn from a vein, usually from the inside of the elbow or the back of the hand. The site is cleaned with germ-killing medicine (antiseptic). The health care provider wraps an elastic band around the upper arm to apply pressure to the area and make the vein swell with blood. Next, the health care provider gently inserts a needle into the vein. The blood collects into an airtight vial or tube attached to the needle. The elastic band is removed from your arm. Once the blood has been collected, the needle is removed, and the puncture site is covered to stop any bleeding. In infants or young children, a sharp tool called a lancet may be used to puncture the skin and make it bleed. The blood collects into a small glass tube called a pipette, or onto a slide or test strip. A bandage may be placed over the area if there is any bleeding. How to prep...
