We studied the prevalence of pain syndromes (РS) in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) in order to clarify the characteristics of their occurrence and the extent of impact on quality of life, level of fatigue and depression in terms of comorbidity. The study involved 207 MS patients with different forms of course. Evaluated the clinical and demographic characteristics of the patients with MS due to comorbidity, conducted multidimensional assessment of pain using the McGill Pain Questionnaire, determines the level of EDSS, the severity of pain (VAS), the severity of fatigue (FSS), depression (BDI-II), quality of life (SF-36). The average prevalence of РS in all our study patients with MS was 76,3%. It was found that a РS in MS patients are more prevalent in patients with comorbid pathology.
