I've recently got myself a wheelchair. After having used some courtesy ones in large public places, I realised what a difference it made.
I used to love walking. I don't drive and am used to being independent, zipping about on public transport.
However, these days, a short trip which I would not have thought twice about, exacerbates symptoms (especially dizziness, myoclonic jerks, 'cog-fog' and paresthesia) and leaves me with very little energy.
I'm a bit nervous about using it and not sure what the physio will say, but I had to do something to alleviate my various symptoms. I wonder why I feel less dizzy sitting down?
Can anyone give me any tips? Is it safe to walk behind my empty chair and use it for balance?
