I currently have scleroderma, migraines, and peripheral neuropathy. On most days my knees give out on me and I'm in extreme pain when walking on my feet. I usually end up limping and grasping onto furniture or people. I'm only 15 and the doctors think I also have rheumatoid arthritis and lyme's disease. I always have muscle soreness and being up and about makes my pain unbearable, even with a cane. Generally I can't walk for more than 2 minutes without extreme pain and being out of breath. Most of the time my whole body is feeling like it's asleep and I sometimes wake up with bell's palsy on the left side of my face. I'm getting so tired of always being tired and in pain, I've wanted to use a wheelchair. But is it necessary? Or am I just not trying hard enough?
