Re: Anyone else use crutches?
I hope that this doctor can help you out. It took me several dr before I found one that would even diagnose my fibro. They all kept telling me it was rheumatory arthritis (my father has severe ra), lupus, lymes, ms, and I had one doctor tell me he thought it was just all in my head. What a nut he was! I haven't made it to crutches or anything yet but I wonder some times how much longer it will be. Instead of getting better, I feel as though I'm getting worse. Some days, I can hardly walk from my bed to the kitchen or bathroom. I can't even walk through the grocery store or Wal-mart now without my husband pushing me in a wheelchair or using an electric chair. (He usually pushes, I'm not very got at driving one of those electric chairs.) I was doing fairly good until about 2 months ago when I had to go to the dr for terrible pains in my legs that would just not let up no matter how much pain med or bed rest I got. When they added neurontin to my list (a long list) of meds, it seems like the pain is getting worse. As for flare-ups, it seems like I go from one flare-up right into the next. If I'm lucky, I might get a good day in between.
