problems with my leg

My left leg doesnt always do what I want it to and it seems to be getting more frequent. For sometime I have felt that it is sluggish when I am walking but in the last couple of weeks I think it is getting worse. I have had two occassions when I could not lift it onto the clutch peddle in my car when I first start to drive and have tripped over things where I am not clearing them.

Does anyone have any ideas about this, should I go to GP now or wait until my next hospital appointment in December?

I don't think numbness or weakness of the limbs is un common, but it might be worth popping along to the GP if you are worried. Better be safe than sorry.

awww huni am sorry to hear this. Like flutterby i think maybe another trip to your GP would, if nothing else put your mind at ease. Hope you manage to get it sorted xxx

have a good day xx

i think I might be more annoyed with my leg than worried about it and I am sure my GP will just say the same as always that its ok. I will see how it goes over the next few days and them maybe see if I can see a different GP at my practice.

Thank you

Hi Sue I do have this problem with my right leg, it does my head in, but it's not all the time but I do have to pick it up to move it sometimes, it was really worrying at first but now, I just think just something else that's broke :( hope your having a good day, take care, Mandy x

See your GP for peace of mind. December might not seem too far away but if it's bothering you like this it's best to get it checked. x
