Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by immune cell infiltration and inflammation within the central nervous system (CNS) causing progressive demyelination and neurodegeneration. Neuropathic pain in patients with MS is of central origin. It is well known that neuropathic pain has a negative impact on MS patients’ quality of life. Therefore, we present a case of a 40- year-old man from Republic of North Macedonia with Relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS). The patient was asked to evaluate how the neuropathic pain influenced the enjoyment of life, daily activity, walking, mood, sleep, work and relations with others. This type of pain mostly interfered with patient enjoyment of life. Clearly, neuropathic pain generally disturbs the comfort of patients with multiple sclerosis.
