Struggled for years and years to walk . A pressure and discomfort in the inside of my thigh pushes my right leg out at an angle and causes me to walk against the joint.
I renewed my war with my neurology consultant and he re- scanned my head and lumbar after a 12 month delay and confirmed a difference and increased action up there, but not enough to be ripping my right knee pieces . "probable increased MS activity" was the words used and still i feared it's truth.
A further appointment at the end of July is arranged to see knee specialist has been arranged . Today , I had an appointment to see a neuro physio therapist ,which came as a big shock to me as i thought it was a physio who was going to help me with my leg and not someone who was going to get in to my head as well!
I listened to her instructions , and pulled against her when she told me, pushed when I was asked and rotated on request. It was only when she described the end of certain movements that I did being MS , my heart sank and realization hit me like a ton of bricks! I left with a series of exercises to stretch and activate the parts of my leg that are resting and controlling the parts of my leg that are over- working and tearing my right hand side of my knee joint to pieces.
So...... Finally here's my point..
What now ??? I started with the news today , with the still moving forward mentality . Now that the evening is in full swing , my positivity is fading!
Where do I go from here ? I have four weeks to the next physio and even longer before I see the knee specialist and longer still, for the neuro consultant! (this is turning in to a rant!)
Any advice anyone?
