Hi there, I see you are some sort of training instructor so maybe you would be just the person to show us what exercises can help. Up till 2 years ago I was doing exercises at home everyday. Then a medico said stop doing the exercises they are causing the spasms. So I stopped for 2 weeks to see. Then when I tried to restart I could not & from then I went into a downward spiral the less movemnt I did the more spastic I became the more pain I had & the less I could move. So whatever you do keep doing it cos with MS if you stop it is difficult (near impossible) to get it back. There is a dr with MS who wrote a book called Living with MS (he also has a website of this name) by G Jelenyck. He looked at everything available (medical & alternate) & devised a programme including exercise & diet. I believe he has kept well & active. Baclofen (in the pump-is good for people who have bad reaction to pills cos it is fed direct to spine where it is needed) has given me my life back - I could not take the pills. Now not only do I have no pain but I have less spasticity so can exercise on Wii Fit, stepper& cross trainer but I am always looking for new more specific exercises ( my left leg is the problem too) Currently I am trying to find ways to get the thigh to contract as I would like to climb stairs (my house has five half levels, lots of stairs-pretty view at the top!). Happy New Year
Have had relapsing/remitting MS since 10 yrs old. Secondary/progressive since 1995.
