I have been having joint pain, especially in my neck and knees. I find walking difficult as my gait has been compromised. I have been prescribed "pregabalin" but it makes me feel very tired and unbalanced too. I am always feeling tired all day. Even sleep, a night of good sleep is not helping. After I have had Bell`s Palsy, my body started going down fast. My left eye is in trouble too. A present by Bell`s Palsy!
My doctors say that they cannot help me anymore and told me to do as much as I can what is possible. Walking is difficult now. I can walk but I must consciously make an extra effort not to sway from side to side.
I am 80 years of age, a pensioner. I used to enjoy the gym activities in earlier years very much. Now, everything just sucks! I live in sheltered accommodation.
If I try to exercise, even without any weight, I am in pain all over and the neck just freezes. The usual painkillers that I often use are Paracetemol which is not really very effective.
How boring, is it not?
