Is this MS? (Or what)

A few days ago, I was sitting with my legs curled up under me. When I tried to stand up, my foot was not flat on the floor. It was still curled like it had been when I was sitting. I lost my balance and hobbled on it 3 times before I grabbed onto something and stood on the other foot. after a minute, I could straighten it out. Now, I am nursing a sore ankle and limping.

Why am I writing about this? Because I don't know if that was from MS or did my foot just "fall asleep"? That is what is so strange about this disease. Sometimes, the invisible symptoms are so fleeting, that I doubt myself.

This morning, I awoke with double vision for a few seconds. Here we go again. Do I need to do something about it?

As I write this, I remember... Try not to stress about it. Wait a few days and see if it comes back. The definition of a relapse is something that lasts at least 24 hours.
