Like the others, I too...have leg problems. I get leg pain and Jello legs almost daily. I have never been able to deal with it well.
I used to run 3-5 miles a day before MS, now I consider myself lucky if I can
walk around the block with my wife locked arm and arm. I too, have fallen, when my legs buckled and I now carry
a fold up cane in my car, or my briefcase, or my backpack. But my Neruro and my physical therapist both say I have to
continue to exercise, even if it is limited because I need muscle to hold my body up, even if I feel weak and wobbly due
to the nerve problems. My legs and arms may not feel strong, but that is a trick of my CNS and my body needs the foundation
of muscles even if I don't think they are there. So I try, and I am about to start Yoga, which according to those that
participate in it, helps enormously. The local MS society recommends it, my doctors and PT do too, and those with MS
that do it, say they tried other forms of exercise, but this form of stretching was the only thing that helped them.
Don't push yourself is good advice, but don't give in to just sitting either. MS management in all things is about your body
and listening to it. Common Sense! Realizing when you are to your limit, or being logical about what you eat, how you exercise, what meds
you take or don't take, conversations with your medical team, support groups like this one, and if it fits your life style...a
prayer once in awhile.
Good Luck and Hang in there!
