    Hi erint,

    MS is unpredictable, and it's different from person to person, so I unfortunately can't give you a clear answer to your questions. You might find it helpful to use the links below to read about gait/walking problems and other common symptoms of MS. Also, I'm moving your post over to the About MS discussion to see if you can get some more feedback from others who are living with MS. You've already got some support and feedback here from 12trikaj, and hopefully you'll hear from some others.

    Gait, balance and coordination problems

    Common and less common symptoms of MS

    I am not an MS navigator but I can tell you that both of my wrists went paralyzed at seperate times and thankfully I got full function back both times.

    June of 2009 I woke up with no function on my LEFT wrist that lasted for months and then February of 2010 I woke up and had no function on my RIGHT wrist that lasted for about 7 weeks or so. January of 2006 I went paralyzed from the neck down and had to call 911 and they fixed it somehow so that thankfully did not even last 24 hours :) BTW they still would not diagnose me with MS even after all of my symptoms and going paralyzed, and they even knew that my sister was diagnosed with MS in 1997. I did not get diagnosed until 11/12 so I am a perfect example of it being so darn hard to get diagnosed let alone getting started on treatment!
    What is going on with you if you don't mind me asking?

    Hello, This might seem like a really dumb question but how did you call the ambulance when you were paralzyed? or was it more a case of severe numbing? How are you feeling now?! I see this post is from a year ago xx hope all is well

    Oh and another note is that before I went paralyzed from the neck down, I had went to the ER the night before because I could feel my hands like tightening up but they said there was nothing wrong with me and sent me home. The next morning at 10:18 am was when I called the ambulance so that was the only symptom or warning that I had.

    When it happened to my wrists there was no sighns or symptoms, I just woke up in the mornings and could not use them:)
