After 3 months in hospital (pneumonia and pleurisy resulted in poor core stability, 5 years of sleeping on my left (to accommodate a catheter leg bag and try to stop snoring) and not using the footrests on the wheelchair, I could not stand, lift my right arm and straighten my right leg.
I had a pain in the right groin and the right gluteus. I had spasms. I also had 6 toe nail infections to the same toe over 2 years. It is at the very end of the sciatic nerve.
I had spasms in the big toe and because I had worn high heels and narrow shoes my toes were also overlapping. It is a complex fashion induced problem which is not caused by MS as any neurologist would say at first. It is a consequence of living with MS. Like the chicken and the egg!

I just found some good advice from the NHS to avoid the bad posture to settle and leave anybody fighting the odds later.
