In my desire to improve walking, I realize how I may have overextended myself. My left hip flexors are quite weak and whilst the neurologist was questioning deterioration, secondary progression (I have relapsing remitting), the physiotherapist at the Neurological Institute did not find major changes except for a strained weak left hip. I know I overtrained and overextended myself preparing for the swim portion of a triathalon this past summer. I am passing this on for 2 reasons. First of all, take time returning to former activities during recovery-as Ann and Judi remind us-listen to your body. Second, keep looking outside the neurologist's opinion. I could be on my way to taking Tysabri if I'd only listened to him.
Good luck to all-I now consider myself recovering from a muscle strain so have eased up on aggravating activities. I am giving more time for the diet to work.
