Here is My Question:
WBC count is 2300. Hip fracture 8 months ago resulted in 3 pins inserted in bone. I am very thin and my doctor said I might need them removed eventually because they cause pain in thin people. I am having MS symptoms - pseudo exacerbation. Could this be the cause?
If I understand you correctly, you are experiencing pain at the hip fracture site and a pseudo exacerbation related to the pain. This is certainly possible since hip pain or any lower limb pain can dramatically increase spasticity and spasms and worsen mobility. If this is the case, see the orthopedic surgeon to determine the source of the pain.
