Intermittent foot drop?

Had a few incidents of it happening coming and going, maybe like 5times at most. Had a few months no bother really.
Then today it’s kicked off only been about an hour or so but pfft…

Not much I can do about it assume but get on with it until it lasts any length of time.

I know today it could be anything like the fact I went for a two hour walk. And I’m now feeling my legs also spasm to hell even through my doses of baclofen.

Im not perticularly worried. Just annoyed.

Though I did say to my husband my if you hear dragging it’s just me. And he laughed “your not a dragon”. Bizarrely his sense of humour helps. ๐Ÿ™‚

I get Foot Drop every now and then also, it is very random in how and when it happens, yes it is more of annoyance than something major. I can’t walk very far unaided anyway, I’m practically House bound so I see Foot Drop as a passing random irritation, when I am able to manage a few steps that is.

My MS Nurse just said to me that it is one of those symptoms that is random for the most part yet some MS sufferers have it permanently and others don’t get it at all.

@elliesmith. Dragon lady ๐Ÿ˜‚ My foot drop is fatigue induced. Slowing my pace and Nordic poles really improves my stamina/distance and reduces tripping/face plants๐Ÿ˜‰ Also as its only my left foot, if I’m walking with someone I always keep them on my right … Keeps my right side from outpacing my left. Agreed, so annoying!
