Walking

Afternoon all, I wondered if I could ask a question of you all. Over the summer months, my walking was particularly bad. Certain factors made it worse, like the fatigue and heat, and it got to the point where I had to use a stick as I got easily tired and that had a direct effect on my walking. Recently, I have started to feel much better, maybe as a result of the weather going cool, and my walking has improved so much so, that I don’t even need the stick anymore. My leg does give way at the knee still, or feel like it’s a bit dead, but it’s a feeling that doesn’t last and not causing me the problems it did over the summer months. Can this be the case? One minute you can hardly walk and then a few weeks after walking like there is nothing wrong? Thanks Miss D :-*

Absolutely, yes. My walking and other symptoms are affected by heat and humidity and I generally feel better when the weather is cooler and can walk better too.

It could be you’re in remission but MS is so variable, enjoy the good times!
