A week ago my left knee started buckling…now it’s worse with mild thigh discomfort. But I can’t put any weight on my left leg so walking is very difficult. I use a Walker (for 25 yrs now)since being diagnosed. Could this be a MS flare up? I haven’t had a true flare up in years…can anyone help? I don’t think it’s my knee because of absence of pain…I think it’s the thigh muscle.
Hi Gloria, MS is a funny old thing and can throw up so many different symptoms as I’m sure you know. Best to see the GP to see if they can help - I hope so. I had similar problems when I could walk, but have been in a wheelchair for many years now. I hope you can keep walking with a walker for as long as possible. My wheelchair gave me freedom to get out and about again (although not at the moment because of Covid). Maz
Thank you for responding. Now, I’m thinking I may have an inflamed nerve in my thigh because I get a strange sensation fro thigh to groin if I move a certain way. I do have an appt with gp next t week but I’m thinking I should talk to my neurologist first. Did you ever hear of this? I suppose a nerve anywhere in the body can be inflamed. I haven’t had a true flare up in years but I had covid in March & I’m thinking that may have stirred things up!
Hi Gloria, Yes it could be a flare up because of Covid. I’m pleased you got through it, its been so dreadful for so many people. I hope it’s not a relapse. Maz x
