I have not been DX yet, probable MS, but my legs sometimes feel very heavy and they ache so bad. I feel like i am 300 pounds but I am not overweight. Why would by legs feel so heavy? Do MS symptoms come and go or do they stay forever. My legs feel this way off and on. Im trying to understand this whole MS thing but very confusing to me. I almost feel like a hypochodriac and I know its not in my head. Weird things have been going on with me. Please help me understand. I had 9 lesions on my MRI but LP came back clean.
Oh, the heavy leg thing. Isn't that so weird? No one would ever understand it unless thay had experienced it! Stairs are the worst. Make sure you always hold the handrail. It helps if you actually lift your knees with your hands. I know it sounds silly, but it keeps you on your balance. Just pay attention! It's easy to fall.
Re: Im trying to understand all this....HELP for KellieD
what do you mean evoked potentials? I had a LP which came back negative. Talk about the worst experience ever. I had to have a blood patch the day after because I couldnt lift my head off the pillow. This whole thing has been a nightmare. Muscle fasciculations, legs feeling heavy, face numbness, left eye feels weird. Just a bunch of funny sensations off and on. Is this what MS is all about?
