I noticed this morning (after I got to work) that my legs were weak and shaky when walking. I did a long walk with my son yesterday and mowed the grass so most likely that was the cause. It all went away by the afternoon making it even more likely that extensive exertion the day before was the cause. I’ve had this feeling both from heavy exercise and with MS. I guess one of the “joys” of MS is not knowing sometimes whether a symptom is MS or is something else. Unless it is something extreme or something I’ve had before I don’t tend to blame MS which historically has meant that it takes me longer to realize that I am in an exacerbation. Fun. 🙂
