Just wondering if anybody else has difficulty walking as I’ve notice recently that when I’m walking my right knee seems to give way. It happens when I put pressure on my right leg and my knee can’t take it and I stumble to one side

I do struggle with walking as my balance is not great and I can’t really walk in a straight line but this new problem just happens randomly even happens if I’m if carrying nothing. I manage to stop myself falling over but if I’ve got anything in my hand I usually drop that

I’m struggling with my MS right now and I don’t need any more problems to add to the long list

@motorsportpete , I know that feeling when your knee suddenly gives way. You tend to lose confidence in its ability!

You just have to give it some light exercise. There’s some suggestions here :-

Hello @motorsportpete.

Indeed most of us have either that or another leg weakness linked to MS. Stretching and yoga can be very helpful for what you are feeling!

Hi @motorsportpete I do have difficulty walking, I’m
A long time ‘gone’ though as I was diagnosed in 2000. Gentle exercise & to keep moving really is the best thing you can do. Something I did a few years ago was Pilates (this was suggested by my MS nurse), &
I found it really helpful – I didn’t do a group class though as my ego got in the way 😌
