I have had ms for 17 years now. left leg has always had trouble walking. Taking Copaxone now among other meds. Currently my left leg toes wont uncurl when I walk. Now my right toes are beginning to do the same. Has any one else experienced this?

My toes curl when I exercise and frequently in the morning before I get out of bed. The big toe goes up and the other 4 curl down. I usually have to pull the toes back up with my hand. The neurologist's NP told me it was spasticity. Do you have a positive babinski sign on your left foot? I have it sometimes and at other times there is no reflex in the foot at all. I have RRMS.

It is possible that the curling of your toes is a manifestation of spasticity. You should discuss this with your neurologist since there are a number of things that can be done for this problem.
