forearm crutches and a four pronged cane

February 4, 2010 at 7:53 pm

I had GBS now CIDP. Am numb and tingling from the chin down. I use a four pronged cane for short distances and fore arm crutches when i need more stability or unfamilier territory(bad weather also) I was relyig on my cane more this summer but things have changed and i have to use my crutches most of the time when i go out. Bad weather(snow) i resort to my walker. the cane is what i would prefer to use because it is easier to go to the bathroom and easier to get in and out of the car. I also wear an AFO on the leftside due to dropped foot and achilles tendon release. Was wearing them on both feet but right side is stronger than my left. (althoug h lately have noticed issues with the right as well)
