Hi just wondering how MS effects other peoples legs. with me it appears that everytime i get an illness (ie heavy cold, urine infection, or just generally really run down) its my legs and lower back that bears the brunt of it they are heavy, tingly and i am just aware they are there 24/7.
i am newly diagnosed with MS after a few years and thanfully have had no relapses in 4 years now so i know in some cases i am in a good place with this MS. I am on gabapentin to help with the tingling etc but its the times when i feel like that i spend hours lying in bed trying to sleep, altho last night i found an ice pack between my knees was the answer or a heatpack strapped to my back sometimes all day seems to help too. i dont need any sticks etc to walk its just the feeling.
i find this really frustrating and upsetting at times, but i do look forward with a positive attitude and keep going to work etc.
any help would be appreciated
