just looking for some advice please.
As a dog groomer I’m on my feet all day (bar the 10mins when I grab a sandwich), I love my job and don’t want MS to get in the way of my day to day working. My legs have always caused me problems in that I can’t always make them work how I’d like. A wonderful feature I’m sure a lot of you know about. I have a lot of pain around my knees but I can’t do painkillers as i seem to be sensitive to them and either get high as a kite or fall asleep even on over the counter strength, not ideal when dealing with bouncy happy fur babies. I already have a fuzzy brain so don’t want to make it worse lol I have acupuncture to help with the pain.
Anyways my question is has anyone any ideas on or experience on anti fatigue equipment? Do anti fatigue mats really work? Any recommendations of footwear to help support standing all day?
I really do enjoy my job and receive a lot of support from my colleagues but I want to maintain my independence for as long as possible as it is a physically demanding job but one i really love. I’m on tecfidera (1 of the lucky ones to experience few side effects) and I take vit D & B which I find helps with endurance but the leg issue is sapping my strength. I already only do a 4 day week and I don’t want to cut down anymore.
So any ideas or recommendations?
