I went for years with just a cane..then came the day I needed a wheelchair, sometimes on my better days I can use a walker.. I have a lot of weakness in my legs and back which keep me from standing for a long time

Just remember you have upcoming injections and a TENS unit to help with the pain baby aka my wife [MARIEMEYER67] emoticon and then we can start getting you back out of the chair again by this summer is the goal

I'm a family caregiver & I also have MS gained to much weight sitting at home we have 7 grand children & thought I should lose weight so I can climb on the playground equipment with them

Hi Mariemeyer67 I am sorry you have to use a wheel chair sometimes, I at one point was also in the same position, I hope that you can soon be out of it. I also have a little bit of a balance problem mostly outside.

My mobility is pretty good. sometimes, when I've been in a flare, I needed a W/C or a walker. usually, I only have mild balance problems.
