Drop Foot and MS

Posted on March 26, 2018

"Walking out of a restaurant tonight and tripped on air. Fell into a ladies chair (didn’t touch or hurt her) and her teenage daughter gave me the meanest look. I said so sorry, my feet aren’t listening to my head tonight. Trying to make light of it to lessen embarrassment, she just rolled her eyes at me and went back to her menu." - A member of MyMSTeam

Does exercise help drop foot?

Has anyone tried functional electrical stimulation for foot drop?

Here are some conversations about drop foot:

My doctor is sending me to an AFO evaluation cause of my drop foot and is suggesting that I not return to work but apply for disability.

Due to the falls and dead leg drop foot, they convinced me that needed ad ground floor apartment.

The fact that my foot keeps periodically rolling on me when I'm walking seems to be taking its toll.

Can you relate?
