Hi. This is my first visit, and as an old silver surfer, phrases such as threads, are a bit foreign to me. But I'm trying. I was MND diagnosed about 8 weeks ago, I am a parent, grandparent, and still working part-time wholly through the use of email. Iive in Wales, but originate from Devon. I support Newport County and Torquay United!
The MND seems pretty aggressive, with use of legs and hands being what I call 'challenging' already. At the moment, I regard every ache or pain as MND related, though I imagine having MND doesn't render one immune to anything else. For about a week now, the worst pain is in the chest - I have assumed it's all part of the disease - it seems accompanied by the familiar 'fluttering' [yes I know there's a posh name for the fluttering], but every one seems to talk about lower and upper limbs, and neck pains, but I've not seen anyone mention chests. I have no breathing problem but have had no respiratory tests yet. I'm beginning to wonder if the pain is something else. Unfortunately, my GP knows less about MND than
I do, the GP not having had case before! Before I start moaning to overworked Consultants does anyone recognise chest pain with MND?
Sorry about the length of this - I am a novice -never been on a forum of any kind before, Will learn. Mellonius
