Does anyone experience stabbing pains?

Hi does anyone experience stabbing pains in your bad side like leg or arm and sometimes head? Is this neuro pain??

  1. I sometimes get an ice pick jab in the head. I don't know if it's MS related or not. I blame everything bad or weakening on my ms though. I know some of it is age related seeing that I'm 74.

    1. Most often, I've been having stabbing pains in the same location in my left thigh for over 25 years. I have a lot of stabbing head pain and random stabbing pain in other body parts. I'm not a doctor, so I can't say what the cause of your pain is. What I will say is that my pain was and is real. It took me many years to get to the right doctors to listen, provide answers, and help. May you do so swiftly.

      1. Thanks for replying. Yes i have it today in my arm and hand. It's MS 🙁 all my issues are MS 🙁 had it for 25 yrs or so. Didn't know until 2012.
        Age doesn't help either

        1. I have suffered from ice pick headaches and stabbing pain in other parts of my body for many years. The headaches are sudden and severe causing me to cry out. Very inconvenient when I'm in the grocery store! My neuro says it is from MS. Nothing can be done since I cannot tolerate MS medications.
