Is Ankle Clonus a permanent condition ?
My neurologist says I have an "ankle clonus". He suspects I have multiple sclerosis. Will the clonus ever resolve or is this a permanent condition ? I can still walk okay most of the time, but I have no "position sense" in my feet, so my sense of balance is poor.

I think that these questions are best put to your neurologist, but if you have multiple sclerosis then the problem is more than likely permanent
