This can be part of MS
What is your question?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Why when I try to walk and increase my stamina will my body not cooperate. In March I could walk around the house, grocery store, etc and do about 3500 steps a day. No I am luck if I can do 1000 a day. I am fighting an uphill battle since breaking both ankles just after (4 days) MS diagnosis
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.
Because there is hyper reflexia in the muscles and a problem with the nerve junction to the muscles.
Physical therapy and correct treatment of the MS is needed.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
