Tightening of knee joint

Has anyone had any problems with their legs? I have been unable to walk very well for over a week. I have seen my gp and he has prescribed diazapam as a muscle relaxer, but my knee joint has seized and I can't straighten my leg. My foot is twisting in & down and my skin has tightened & thickened on my lower leg, so I'm having to use a walking stick. I keep losing balance and falling. My scleroderma is in an aggressive cycle just now.

I'm hoping someone might have some advice for me please.

I am waiting to go in for iloprost infusion, but there is a bed crisis at the moment, so I'm stuck at home until I am admitted x
