Please keep me up-to-date on how you get on. Like you I am still working, and tried to move as little as possible, but I can now do simple things like bending to plug something into the wall without it being an effort. Good luck to you.View Thread
I hope it works for you. I haven't had any side effects as yet, but this is only my 5th day. I can report that I am smiling a lot more because I can do simple things like putting one foot in front of the other without concentrating about it and put shoes on without holding onto things for balance. Good luck to you and please report how you get on.View Thread
I have just read your post and found it extremely helpful. I have been having trouble walking for approx 2 years and it seemed to be getting worse and worse, to the point of where I was considering walking aids. Today is my 4th day of taking Ampyra and I am happy to say that my walking and speed of walking is the best it has been in the last 18 months - long may it continue .View Thread
