Now this is wierd, as long as I can remember, I have never had any reflexes in my knees when the eoctor would tap it with the little hammer like thingie.  He would tap all over my legs trying to get it to jump and they never could, no matter how they tried.  I am now asuming it was the MS right; and even now they still cannot get my legs to jump, MS right?Undecided  sherry/smomdukesKiss
