Why My Son

I have a 42 yr old son diagnosed with MS in 2014. Before that he had his own place, a girlfriend and raising two girls. He began having pain above and below his knees making it hard to walk. Long story short, he lost his job, his place, and his girlfriend.mHe went from walking with a cane to a walker to a wheelchair and now spends most of his time in bed as it is to difficult to transfer. He has very little trunk control now. He has leg muscles that are so tight 24 hrs a day. He has a baclofen pump (second one as first was broken) that seems to not be doing anything. His eyesight is going as he sees blurry now. He has no control of bladder/bowels and totally depends on me his mom. Can anyone offer help as to how the leg muscles can loosen up. He is now being checked foe NMO. My son is in constant pain all day. Through all this he never complains.
