Re: New symptoms

Certainly a possibility if you have a diagnosis of MS. If not, it could be many things. While many people get constipation issues, I have the opposite problem. My bowel frequency often increases ahead of a "bad event". Leg weakness is a problem. I would definitely journal these and track the intensity and duration thereof.

Thanks Jayhawk, I figured as much. I do have a probable DX of RRMS from 4 yrs ago, gonna be going back soon for recheck. Keeping a list. Like i said, its more of a "percieved weakness" as in I still can walk etc, just feel sluggish in the legs./

Re: New symptoms

Your perception is generally correct as far as I have experienced. The perception may become more extreme as it manifests. Often, I will "feel" the onset long before it is visible to others. I would stick with your "gut" feelings!
