I had an awful day today. I just had someone close to me shame me for being sick.

Hi everyone! I have been trying physical therapy recently in an attempt to regain some mobility that I have lost due to muscle spasticity and foot drop in my left leg.
The physical therapist has suggested an Ultraflex ankle brace that would go halfway up my calf. Has anyone tried this? I’d hate to spend several hundred dollars on something that might not help but really I’m willing to try anything to be able to walk better. If anyone has any feedback, I’d appreciate it.
My legs are jumping really bad at night time and im really struggling to sleep, does anyone else suffer the same or knew why it does it
Looking to start tecfidera and I want to become pregnant. My other half is reversing his vasectomy. It may take some time to become pregnant as we are not in our twenties. I was thinking to go off meds for a few months but if it doesnt work what then? Would it be safe to start tecfidera and keep trying? Has anyone gotten pregnant while on this medication?
Hi Team, we know how important is it to keep moving. So, @A MyMSTeam User and I came up with a fun way to begin to be more active. MS won't stop us! Each week we will have a fitness challenge.
