Can MS cause bone pain that lasts for months?
MS doesn’t directly cause bone disease. Bone thinning can be seen as a result of chronic medication use associated with bone loss in addition to immobility and reduction in weight bearing activity. True bone pain should be evaluated through a primary care physician first as MS is not a direct cause for this symptom.
