I Walk Pretty Ok

I Walk Pretty Ok

Problems with balance, coordination, and gait are not uncommon for people with MS, and some people use a cane, walker, or a wheelchair to help them get around. Others manage without an assistive device but still experience hiccups when walking, including sharp pains! In her latest comic, Brooke shares how a stabbing pain in her lower legs stopped her in her tracks while walking in New York City and how, at first, she was embarrassed but eventually overcame this feeling.

    I just love that cartoon, it’s easy to laugh at that. But, I wish I could walk better. Even with my cane, I just have not been able to get my balance and I haven’t any confidence in my walking. Then I fell in December and broke my hand. At one time, I was able to walk okay, but then I had cervical surgery and walking even with a cane is so hard. I’m afraid I am going to fall again. I’ve had five years of PT which didn’t help.
