Is it possible to restore walking if I haven't lost my strength. I can walk with a walker but still not showing signs of MS all of my MRIs are clean and all my neurologists tell me I'm stable so I went off all the opiates he was giving me and feel no more fog my question is can I restore the walking I'm 36 and this diagnosis and decline came suddenly with no response from my doctor.
The ability to restore function, such as walking, depends almost entirely on what is causing your problems. If your MRI scans are, “Clean” without evidence of MS then you need to find out the cause of your problems. I am glad to hear you’ve been able to stop the opiate medications. That is important progress. If your current neurologist will not tell you his or her thoughts, then it is probably time for a second opinion with another neurologist, preferably someone experienced. Good luck
