Hi, by pure accident now on two occasions when going for a walk I’ve had to use a large umbrella due to impending rain. whilst waiting for the rain, I found that having to carry the big brolly and use it as I’m walking its helped my unsteadiness and sense of imbalance, without it on a good day I can try about 2k slowly but feel off balance but on the occasions with the brolly can do more, however if I go too fast I can feel my head getting full and some pain emerges so I know I can’t go too mad on the walking, I need to pace myself.
I’m now on starting my 6th week on 37mg of effexor and its helping too.
Does anyone use support when walking, is it advisable or am I tricking my brain??
When I mentioned it to my go this week she said its giving me confidence…I’m with my neuro in two weeks so I’ll ask him. I’ve been two years trying to get back walking.
Thanks a mill x
