All of my symptoms are related to my right side. Night time leg spasms have increased the last few weeks. Still have drop foot on my right side and right arm not much good. Other than that I still feel more alert and awake, much better heat tolerance. I wonder how I would feel if I could sleep. The leg spasms only happen at night.
Two years ago, I would have been incapacitated by the amount of sleep I am getting due to the leg spasms. Now I feel tired, but not the MS fatigue I used to feel.
