Doing Damage Or Not
Why is so hard as you get older to get anyone g.p or any other health professional to give you helpful advice.
I am 32 I have many of the symtons of cp and ageing a few years ago my left knee was painful and swollen the gp sent me for a scan which showed nothing.
In the last week both my knees have started to hurt more or less constantly a friend who dies massage says he can feel the muscles down the sides of my knees are tight. But no one can answer my question of well am I doing more damage than good by walking should I be using the wheelchair more? Or will that cause other problems.
If health professionals can't give me the information how am I suppose to make an informed decision on the best thing to do. At the moment pain in my back hips and knees keeps me awake often even after taking painkillers which just makes everything harder the next day.
All I want is for the pain to go away and some more definate answers rather than we don't know only you can make that decision. No I can't if I haven't got the information to make an informed choice.
Sorry to rant but I'm currently frustrated, confused, scared and running on about 4hrs of sleep!!
Any thoughts/advice gladly received.
