I have a question from my pediatric MS group for you :
For our kids that have lingering pain post attack: Is it possible that the kind of intense PT/OT that children who have been diagnosed with (AMP) Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain receive be beneficial to our MS kids who experienced post attack pain?
Unfortunately there is no good data for this technique in pediatric MS. We encourage patients to have a detailed exam with their neurologist and physiatrist to determine the cause of the pain (neuropathic versus musculoskeletal versus spasticity) as this can dictate the best course of action.
