Good day all, I have been diagnosed with ms for 11 years. Right now I'm facing weakness (jelly like) in my legs when I go out for a walk. I really need to incorporate some sort of exercise in my life. I don't know how to overcome this, it jus seems there regardless of what I do, even when I try to push myself, it dosent help. Does anyone know how to deal with this? I want to be stronger.
I have been unwell for 14yrs and had many tests over the years which always come back normal. I was told i had m.e/cfs. 2 years ago i had really bad vertigo when i tried to get up out of bed. I had another brain mri and this time it showed lesions. The neuro did a lumbar puncture and evoke potential test which both came back normal. He doesn't want to see me for 12 months unless something happens in the mean time. I feel i am no further forward after 14yrs except i now have lesions.

Hi I have recently been diagnosed with MS and am a bit overwhelmed as to what I need to do or know... the MS nurse told me that I should think about medication when I am more at ease with the recent knowledge.. Sorry if I sound vague, but the symptoms I have been having aren't the usual ones you hear or read about... Can someone please enlighten me? Thank you! Penny
