I can no longer walk without the aid of a cane and at times resort to using a walker - my hips and legs are so weak they feel like matchsticks about to break. If I use just my cane, I 'hop' along and reach for support from a counter or chair. I thought perhaps I has having an 'extinction burst' as a result of extensive journaling and uncovering buried emotions, but this crippling condition has gone on for just over 3 month. It is not so much pain that I feel when I try and walk, but stiffness and a dull, deep ache when I sit or lay down. Anyone have advise please?
