One side of my body (left) always larger?

Maybe like swollen. I took a walk and my leg on left side started dragging. When I got I noticed it even more.

    I have noticed the same for years… Brought it up to my neuro. He told me because my left side had always been the weakest. That my right was bigger because it was compensating from the pressor of the opposite

    Hi LindaB,

    Thanks for the question and for being a part of our community! One of contributors wrote an article about how her MS sometimes seems to pick certain sides of her body. You can read more about it here: https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/picking-sides/.

    Definitely something to mention to your healthcare team if you haven’t already. And, I’d be curious to see if others in the community experience anything similar!
