I've recently gone from my version of running in May to Nordic Walking. I'd fallen 21 times in May and by the time I figured that out, just accepted and wasn't paying attention, until June and finally got with a Physical Therapist who is certified to work with MS.

I've lost strength in my right leg, balance, coordination, etc. My PT suggested going out with trekking poles as a measure to keep me active but also help with preventing falls. So far so good. By no means am I as fast as I was when I was running - but I haven't been that fast since before I was diagnosed.

Just throwing out another option. My current goal is trying to see if I can increase my base line and see what happens. Luck to everyone & thank you Dave for the useful review on Trekking Poles.
