Hi all I have a question if anyone can answer. I have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, a lot of bone and joint pain (in my whole body) we are planning on going on a vacation an I told my Dr I can walk around but not for an hour and asked if it would be OK if I bought a power chair for my just for when I really can't walk! To my surprise he said NO, I said what should I do when we are on vacation an I walk the first day an push my self to do things an can't walk the next day he said stay in bed! I said wouldn't it be better to use a chair when I really need it an get out than being in the house all day an his only reply was your to young to start using a power chair I said well I already have been using them when we go out places that have them available (just when I really need it) he again said NO! Now I'm asking you all does what I'm saying make sense or just stay in like the Dr says? I know if I will have to push my self to do things an walk the first day (just the car ride is going to be a lot of pain for me ( the drive will be 3hours) (we are going to tnn to Dollywood every day we are there we will be there 4 days) I don't want to rune vacation for my family an they don't want to go do anything without me what do I do??
