Hello everyone. I am having some symptoms which I think are linked to MS and wanted to get some of your opinions about what I'm experiencing.
 
Last year, I was experiencing extremely weak legs, after walking for a very short time... like as simple as walking from my car into a store. My legs would become so weak, that they almost felt like they were about to give out on me. This symptom last about 6 months or so and then it just stopped and I was fine.
 
More recently, Ive noticed that after a shower or bath, my right foot would drag. I would have to liek use effort to bring my foot out of the tub... not physically using my hand to pick it up, but I would have to liek drag my foot up and out of the tub. The feeling would only last a few minutes and then would be back to normal.
 
Now, Im expereicning limping from my right foot all of the time. It also drags more often. When I have on flip flops, I notice that the shoe comes off of my right foot so often, like my foot and the shoe are going in two different directions. I hope that make sense.
 
I really dont know what's going on, but Im ready to go to the doctor. Does this sound like MS to you???

Get to a neurologist immediately. Limping and foot dragging are not normal!
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.

Not normal?  Really?  Thought it was just part of MS.  No?

Uhtoff's syndrome, or exacerbation of MS symptoms when the body is exposed to heat is a secondary reaction to primary symptoms of MS. Please get clinically evaluated.
