//: Could be the ms or possibly "good old" sciatica which is a pinched or irritated nerve in the low back causing such symptoms as you relate in any event check your vit d level and get it up to > 50 ng/ml and this may help the ms.

SOME THOTS: Pain is very common in ms, and can present numerous ways, and even migraine is present in ms pts at a frequency of 2-4 times normals. However, your muscle spasms could represent a separate process in hip, back, pelvis. (unlikely, but if you were given steroids, check for avascular necrosis in hip). Lastly, do not want to second guess your doc, but there are oral meds now (no needles).
