Even though I have SCA I have been fortunate to be able to walk of sorts. The other week I took a fall and I was able to get up not feeling bad except for some feeling of embarrassment. Fortunately no one else was around to see it! A skinned knee was the only result. I was physically fine for the next few days. As has been recommended regarding this virus, I have stayed inside. I woke up the first day in incredible pain when I tried to walk or stand still on the top side and ankle of the right foot basically on the right side. It also hurts on the outside of my right thigh just below the hip. Nothing is broken. IMO, a sprain feels worse than break.
I started using a cane but that really hasn’t helped that much. Because of our balance problems a cane isn’t very effective in my opinion. I just got my hands on a borrowed walker and I find that it does help when trying to walk since it helps to keep the pressure off the right foot.
I hope that this pain goes away quickly and I return to my “normal” walking. FYI, I live alone so you can imagine how tough it’s been to manage. If pain levels are identified 1 - 10, I’m talking 11.
