Does anyone here, that's officially been diagnosed with MS, ever get swollen ankles and/or knees? For the past several weeks, I've had severe stabbing pains behind my knees, which causes my legs to ache severely and to walk funny (my husband said he has noticed me walking weird also). They are also very stiff!! At first, it was mostly behind my right knee, lately it's been in my left, or both. I've also been having lots numbness with pins-&-needles in both legs and feet. I noticed last night that when I got out of the shower, my ankles were swollen, huge! My husband looked at them this morning and agreed that they were definatley swollen. Couldn't hardly get out of bed this morning because I was so stiff. By the way, I have Fibromyalgia. I'm trying to find out if this is Fibro, or something else. (go in for MRI's, EEG, EMG on Monday) Have any of you had problems like this?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
