An easy Pedicure

No, not nail varnish: I hate the stuff.  Two days ago, though, I decided my toenails needed cutting yet again and this time I cut them all with both feet sitting calmly on the floor: absolutely no extensor plantar activity.  It has taken a long time: when I first started treatment, it was so bad that my foot could come up and hit me in the face.  Over the years it has lessened bit by bit, even after finishing antibiotics, but now it has gone completely.  I thought it might the last few times I have cut my toenails but now it has happened!.......................Sarah

I'm really happy for you Sarah.  Great to see progress still being made, Irene x

Thanks Irene!  It has taken quite a long time but it does show that improvements carry on even after the infection has gone.  Tginking back, I have had jumpy feet for years, much longer ago than when my MS became progressive.  What I am hoping for now is that my walking might take a turn for the better.  I haven't been able to run properly since 1999 but that year I did climb right up the Eiffel Tower and I was having difficulty running since about three years previously..............................Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Excellent news Sarah!

Out of interest have you been doing stretching(yoga pilates etc) or exercises to help with range of motion? 

Or has this just happened over time?
