I am new to this forum thing so not sure what to expect or whether I’m doing the right thing.
I was diagnosed with MS at 20 years old and was recently told by the neurologist that it has now changed to Secondary Progressive as a result of similar symptoms coming back every couple of years but no longer going away.
I am 27 now but my legs feel like they are 100 years old. Balance is horrific, strength is weak and to everybody else it probably looks like I’m always drunk with little trips or foot drags every so often. I understand that these symptoms are just part of life now but I have not been offered any treatments at all even though my neurologist is aware of all my problems. I used to play football and be able to run everywhere, but now I struggle to run up a step let alone play football or go for a jog.
In the last couple of weeks, my right leg is constantly agitated as if there is something irritating it inside so I have the constant urge to stretch it, move it and do anything that slightly eases the feeling. Its such a frustrating feeling that wont go away and it is slowly getting worse. Does anyone have any advice on what it could be or how I could stop it or if there’s anything I could take to make the feeling go away? Or do I just accept it as normal now and deal with it?
Thanks, I hope someone can help.
