Do you use a walking stick or a walking frame with wheels? During 'off' periods, I find walking very difficult/ almost impossible. I have trouble using a walking stick because I can't get my head around moving my legs and the stick becomes an added burden. If I stand and think about it for a while, I put the stick forward and 'sort of' shuffle up to it (method not recommended in public places like supermarkets!). I have just sent for a 'Parkinson's' stick - hoping for magic!
When I am 'off'' , I can't carry anything at all, not a walking stick, not a piece of paper, not my handbag. Nothing at all.
A pwp friend has similar problems with a walking frame with wheels. Does anybody use one successfully - without it running away when person freezes? The brake/braking is also a problem.
Is a frame without wheels easier to use?
I hope somebody has the answers.
