Like you, I have a leg that gives me problems, but my symptoms are different from yours so I don't know if my experience will be useful to you. My problems are all in my right leg and to do with muscle tension - a feeling of the leg "setting in concrete" the moment I stop moving; 'jumpy' or 'restless' legs and sometimes uncontrollable muscle spasms brought about by as little as a sheet or a nightdress touching my leg.
The really good news is that my leg problems have become much better after starting the OMS programme! I don't know how long you have been following the programme but hopefully the same will be true for you.
In addition to OMS, other strategies I have found helpful include:
- acupuncture. My leg always felt much better after a treatment. Acupuncture would be a very safe option in terms of conception and pregnancy, I imagine?
- a TENS unit (transcutaneous electrical stimulation). This is a small battery driven device that gives very small amounts of electrical stimulation via adhesive pads that you placed on your skin. It works by 'tricking' the brain into noticing the electrical stimulation instead of the numbness/tingling/pain that is troubling you. Again, an option that I would imagine is very safe for conception / pregnancy. I paid about 30 pounds sterling for my tens unit a few years ago.
- a foam roller (like this one - https://www.amazon.co.uk/PhysioRoom-Exe ... B0057EQHU6
) basically to 'self-massage' the legs by lying on the floor with your leg or legs on top of the roller and using your arms to pull yourself backwards and forwards.
Because my problem was all to do with tension I have also been prescribed the muscle relaxant Baclofen. Your problem is different from mine so this may not be relevant for you and I don't know if this drug would be safe for you.
If your leg problems are not too severe, perhaps you may not need to worry too much about having the symptoms treated before you conceive? From what I have read, the hormones that are present during pregnancy mean that women with MS apparently find that symptoms disappear during pregnancy. I also have the impression that breastfeeding prolongs this positive effect?
I wish you good luck, Carmen.
