Although I am undergoing investigation and am hence as yet undiagnosed (in an overall sence), I have been experiencing mobility issues which have become progressively worse over the course of the last year.
Pain, tightness and weakness in my legs become worse with mobilization and it becomes difficult to keep up with my family when out and about.
I was referred for physio sometime ago and attended an initial assessment after which I have been referred yet again for treatment with a specialist neurological physio. I have no idea how long I will have to wait for the next appointment and am becoming frustrated by my lack of progress. Although I am 'in the dark', there is presumably some kind of issue as my Neurologist has just put me on to Pregabalin.
I dearly miss going for long walks with my family and am wondering if it will be frowned upon if I were to 'jump the gun' and get hold of some crutches or something similar to aid mobility during bad spells and pending further physio or professional advice? I am worried that I may be taken as some kind of fraud?
Is there anyone out there who has been in a similar situation? Is anyone able to provide advice? I am becoming a little stir crazy
