So, I finally saw a neuro physio who recommended using a foot splint, as my walking issues would be mainly due to swinging the leg on the outside to avoid tripping on my foot. She got a very valid point of course.
I am in 2 minds about this. I did use it today, and there are some huge benefits, like not having to think about every single step, it seems to make a big difference to my fatigue and brain space, and I was able to admire the blue sky for the 1st time in a long time.
I am however scared to lose the little bit of control I have left over my foot. If I stop moving it, wouldn’t the muscles in there go completely to waste to the point of no return? I still have hope that, after Lemtrada and with a bit of time and good diet, the nerves will repair to some extend.
Anyone else wearing a splint? what do you think?
