Walking has improved. No spasms in left leg lately. But after a month on ampyra my tongue started to hurt when eating spicy foods. Then my whole mouth was in pain. I could eat anything nor use listerine after brushing. Very painful.

Experiencing very bad burning skin on my legs like a bad sunburn on my skin. Don't know if it is from Ampyra or not, but I was on it when it first came out, and then stopped because my Neuro said I wasn't walking "fast enough" then went back on to see if it would help with the "quicksand feeling" I will say I forgot if that is helping because the burning is so bad I wan ...
