    My MS has been acting up. My legs are feeling heavy and weak. Sometimes they feel like they will collapse but luckily there has been something to grab onto. I haven't gone to Curves all week 'cuz I just don't have the energy. I had a small seizure while riding in the car with husband two nights ago.

    I recently saw my neuro for a routine check-up, and he said I was doing good even though I was having some symptoms.

    It could be the heat, and I haven't been drinking enough water. I'm sure I'll get better soon. Sorry to whine but I'm feeling a bit down at the moment and need a hug.

    Hugs Sue...hope its just the time of year. Have you changed medications or do you need to up medications?

    If you are having problems with walking or balance, consider getting a cane just for the time being. I know I know. I dont want one either but I have a walker! Talk about old lady...lol. When I can I want a scooter.

    It is ok to have a bit of "self empathy" from time to time :smile:

    You have huge hugs coming from me. MRI's aren't enough to diagnosis me at this point, so nobody wants to "label" what is wrong with me. But I know exactly! what you are meaning about your legs. I completely relate and doesn't it just stink? Such a odd feeling and really nothing you can do about it when it comes on but ride it out. I know heat can be a huge factor with the weakness etc, it certainly can be for me. I hope you feel better soon and that this is just a twinge and not any kind of flare starting up.
