Customer Question

In Oct. 2010, I had a sensation that I was hydroplaning (slipping) -- right foot. The sensation lasted several weeks and the subsided. It's now back all the time, and I can no longer walk naturally. If I concentrate on my walking, I can overcome so that my step appears normal. And most don't notice a problem. I've had a doppler test to see if I had coratoid blockages (only minimal amt. and normal for my age--56). I've been checked by an opthalmologist -- no problem. I have no pain or numbness. My weight is 145 lbs., I have normal lab tests, and no other symptom EXCEPT that I'm drowsy a lot. But I have a lot of allergies & have had problems from time to time with drowsiness which I attributed to allergic reaction.

See a neurologist
Have an MRI of the brain
This can be a symptom of MS, not necessarily but you should have an MRI to see if there are any lesions.
good luck

Sorry unable to edit the above
Was going to add that the diagnosis consist of having at least 2 typical lesions on MRI and symptoms that have gone away at least once and come back.

This might fit or not but should prompt the exam and workup.
Starting with one limb out of control can be typical.
good luck
