After a big relapse which left me unable to walk, I started treatment on Tysabri in January of this year. I have seen a lot of improvement in my health. I can walk again but my walking is slightly strange (i must say so myself lol). The main issues are that I have foot drop on my left leg which can be dangerous as I trip over my own feet. Also my left leg swings rather than me being able to lift my knee & then land my leg on the ground heal first before pushing off my toes & bending my knee. (I believe that is the correct theory behind walking. That is what my right leg does but my left leg has a funny looking motion).
I need anyone help/support. I appreciate i have come a long way & that not everyone makes a full recovery from a ms relapse but I am sick to death of people staring when I walk. Plus when it is busy I dont feel my walking is safe as I am wobbly and afraid of falling or colliding in to someone.
Any tips on exercises to do with dropped foot or to get my hips moving in a normal motion? Has anyone struggled to walk- how long did it to take you to recover & what did you do?
i need any tips. I feel like the improvement is slowing even though Im trying everything. I feel so low
