Hi all , thanks very much for your kind replies. Today I was a tad panicked , the gp said I will be in a wheelchair within 5 years and I've had this for 15 years now , so cocky me thought pah what do you know . Well today I had the most hideously painful cramps and spasms from the knees down for nearly an hour and nothing I could do would stop it . so I ended up in tears in the bath hoping the warmth would help . My partner came up to see where I was and found me in tears as did my grown up daughter . No sympathy or help from there , I'm getting really scared what will happen if I DO end up in a wheelchair . Feeling pretty scared right now . I'm trying to do everything I can to reverse what's happening but feel like it may all be for nothing but what choice do I have ! Yoga , osteopath and acupuncture being the favourites at the moment. the gp doesn't want to help as I try the tablets but the side effects are so bad I can't work or do anything and I have no choice at the moment until January when I leave my job and reassess my life . I do agree with the people on this site who say you really must try to keep positive but I'm struggling today
