Legs?!...don't fail me now!

I've been having some issues with spasticity in my legs.  It seems to be getting worse???? :(  Very frustrating since everything else seems to be, either the same, or better.  I can still walk as far as before, but I feel like I am working harder...it's hard to explain why...just, that if I walk too fast, my legs can't seem to 'coordinate' and I fear stumbling (actually I sometimes do stumble).  And then I have to concentrate on staying balanced.  I'm just not smooth anymore...and I miss being smooth.

I went to see my neuro a couple of weeks ago to get the results of the MRI I had in January.  Seems, whatever I have been doing is preventing those nasty T-cells (?) from passing through the blood-brain barrier, because I have no enhancing lesions! Yeah!  My neuro attributed it to the medication she thought I was still on (I guess the MS nurses forgot to mention that I had gone off Copaxone last year!). When I told her I wasn't on Copaxone, she asked me 3 time…
