    Hi Russ,
    I do think you should tell your GP about your stomach pain in case it has nothing to do with MND. It may be an ulcer, IBS etc. and not ‘just’ indigestion or trapped wind.

    Do you take Riluzole or any other MND-related meds?


    The nerves affected in MND don’t carry pain signals to the brain.


    Gabapentin is the drug most frequently prescribed for neuropathic (nerve) pain, but there are also alternatives.


    Best wishes,
    Love Ellie.

    Hi Russ
    You will find lots of support here. Just to mention, I've had mnd almost 8 years, and get lots of tingling, numbness, buzzing and vibration sensations, like having a mobile phone next to you! Annoying but not usually painful, thankfully.
    All the best.
