24 years using just a walking stik for balance--now I'm using a walker and walking slower than a snail

right side has always been weak-- no reactions to many of the nero tests--this is left side I seem to be dragging left leg when I stand on it the knee buckles I just cant't trust myself went mri and am waiting for dx --MY dx is I just sprained my back and need CHIRO

has anyone had a buckling knee and lower back pain??

thanks

    • My knees (something knees) buckle when I stand sometimes. They also do it sometimes when I'm walking or try to pick up my speed. I don't have back pain, though. I do have a slipped disk in my back but when that presses a nerve I'm usually bedridden with a heating pad and muscle relaxers. Moving is too excrutiating. Hope it turns out to be just a back problem a few chiro visits can solve. Good luck.

    • Lower back pain could be due to compression on a nerve on your spine and not MS related. In terms of the knee buckling, really hard to say. It could be possible from your brain not communicating with that body part but again, unto itself wouldn't necessarily be an MS symptom. Years ago when I was getting into a cab, my knee buckled out from under me for no apparent reason and I sprained a ligament. In retrospect, was this MS? Hard to know for sure but it's possible it was just plain old stress and how I was getting into the cab.

    • Still using walker and knee still giving in &out

      MRI shows NO flare up-- guess AVONEX is working

      went to pcare dr.-- dx siatica nerve (probably over did in garden)waiting for X_RAYS of lower back and knee

      treatrment hot and cold compress on back and a massage doesnt think chiro would help but rec phys therpy

      waiting 4 xrays-- U would think having MS would be enough

    • I've had problems with my knee and ankles. The worst is the stairs. If i'm not paying attention I can plant my foot down and realize it's not gonna hold me up. Two years ago I tore all the ligaments in my ankle with this happening. I just assumed I had weak ankles. But the pain was nothing I ever felt before. I thought my foot was gonna rip off!! My foot did a complete 90 degree bend under the ankle as I walked down my front stairs. Which is bad enough, but it was while i was taking my autisitc son down my front steps to his bus. Luckily the driver came to my aid and helped me in the house. I had to walk my other son to school the next day too because I had no car, and wonderful hubby said he couldn't take off work. :)

      Ahhh the memories!

      I have the same symptoms including lower back pain which usually is at its worst when i wake in the morning that could be 5 am and the only relief i get is to get out of bed the day is long enough when u cant walk i am going to try acupuncture on my back hope it might relieve pain:angel:
