I am having so much difficulty walking,its not just the extreme pain in my feet & legs but also my hands are getting really sore holding my walking stick (or sometimes sticks.)A friend suggested trying crutches - at first I was adamant that I wouldn't but I've finally given in!
I've bought a pair of lightweight elbow crutches & I must admit that they're really helpful, but I can't get over the fact that it feels like giving in.
I already have to use a mobility scooter but that doesn't feel so bad.
My pain is genuine, so why on earth should I feel so awkward about using crutches?
This damn Fibro. I SO want to walk normally, but it's not going to happen!
But on a positive note, my crutches are PURPLE !!!
