Hi Jamie,

I'm just as in the dark as you - but my main issue is with my legs, being unable to lift them when laying down, gait issues and overwhelming fatigue. I had hoped my gait issues were down to something mechanical and a hip problem or something which could be fixed but as time goes on, i think a signalling error with my brain could affect the area round my hips, glutes, quads. My gait issues are subtle but involve my feet turning in when i walk too much, this then makes everything hurt. This foot turning in thing has been explained by a neurophysio as coming from weakness in the hip/glute muscles. I am doing some very simple glute strengthening exercises but have no idea if there is any point in this if the error is in signalling. Even the phsyio didnt seem sure. I hope someone more knowledgeble than me can contribute.

What are your symptoms?

Yes Jamie, its the same. It means there is a problem with functioning of the system, rather than a structural problem.

I've had symptoms since February. Tried neuro-physio privately this week but other than building muscle strength, I dont think there is much they can do.

Like you say Jamie, a signalling error. Its what causes it that I want to know.

No, mainly my legs, fatigue and brain fog but that wouldnt surprise me. I have seen a range of whacky symptoms. The brain is a very complicated thing!

Hi jamie79 I was taught with my left leg dragging, foot turned in, to always put my heel down first, this stop the limping, dragging etc BUT if I walk too far the symptoms return with the added bonus of pain. It’s all about pacing yourself, the heel down first has helped immensely.
