I was recently diagnosed with MS after issues that started in April/May last year. My question to all today is about my legs. I have been diagnosed as having RRMS but my legs have continuously got worse since this all started. At first I was still able to run around but after a short time my legs would turn to jelly and I took a couple of falls in public places. Gradually it has got to the point where I cant walk for 20 mins without them giving way, i cannot walk in a straight line and quite often my right leg will just buckle when standing. Since being diagnosed i have seen physio and am doing the daily execises (for the last 2 weeks) but my reason for the post today is this:
Realistically is it only going to get worse or will these exercises actually have an effect?
The jist I get from everyone is if I do these exercises then i will stay at the level I am at which for me does not sound great at all. I know a day out now requires a wheelchair but the feeling I have is that if it progresses the same way it has the last 6 months i could end up in one permanently. i know may other sufferers are already at the stage but I guess i’m just looking for hope that it can get just a little better?
