cannot stand on my toes so cannot push off when I walk. The muscles in my legs hurt when I stand and when i walk because some are paralyzed or just weak and other muscles are over worked.So many doctors try to treat me like I have foot drop but I have the opposite problem.Even a prosthetic specialist sold me a very expensive orthotic for foot drop because she did not understand that I did not have foot drop but needed something to help me push off and did not listen when I told her my problem. I use forearm crutches to walk, my doctor suggested a walker, so I went to the internet for help and found a really good pair of forearm crutches made in Canada. US doctors just push walkers. I also have bowel and bladder issues, but I would like to solve my walking problem first, sick of being indoors all winter because of my lack of balance.
