Muscle Atrophy

I was diagnosed in 2011, and I think I have given in to MS too quickly. I have had a number of relapses, one with double vision and two with a deterioration in my walking. However I don’t believe that the walking ones are real relapses, as they coincide with me losing a lot of weight. I believe my mobility problems are due to the weakness caused by muscle atrophy. I wish I had thought of this sooner. Does anyone here have experience of recovery from muscle atrophy? Any tips?

A decent physio will identify areas of muscle weakness and suggest a programme of exercises to help. I tend to think MS will take what it likes, but regular physio might allow you to keep what you have for longer.

edit. I have just noticed you make the same post every couple of years. Are you looking for a different answer?
