Leg pain

Hey guys I am after a bit of advice the last couple of days I have had really bad leg pain if I put my heel on the ground the pain shoots right up my leg so doing a funny walk 😬 been really busy with work and I think I may have overdone things.

Made an excuse about pulling a muscle as everyone was asking what I had done 🙈
Limping is so hard to hide

Any ideas what this is ? Thinking of seeing dr on mon if still the same

@niteowl , it could be that your leg muscles are becoming stiff.

Stretching should be tried to see if this provides any relief.

Here’s an article here about these types of problems, with some links to stretching exercises :-

Sounds rather like the pain I had when my snapped Achilles tendon. If it’s this you’ll need physio attention – the sooner the better.

@niteowl , the problem with your right foot sounds very much like Foot Drop :-

Call your MS nurse to discuss the burning and also to arrange a Neuro-physio assessment, to look at your foot and shoulder problems.

Thanks stumbler I am on gabapentin 600 mg three times a day to help with the burning and nerve pain I was waiting for it to kick in.
Oh I have just looked at this link and yes I think it could be would explain the limp I have as feel my right foot is dragging and I keep tripping I put that down to my balance as it’s all over the place 😬 my toes have been numb for months among other things waiting to hear back from neuro for app for head mri, am still in limbo.
The fatigue is like quicksand it swallows me up mid afternoon and I have to sleep usually for 3 hours.
I have always been such an active person i am 38 this has been going on for so long and I am getting worse.
Thanks for the support not many people know what’s going on been putting my limp down to a pulled muscle when asked 😬 which happens a lot oh what have you done ? Am struggling with my work as tiredness just hits me.
Am so glad I found shift and can talk to people that understand

The shoulder could be a referred pain, caused by the strain you’re putting on the bad leg.
