arh0006 Posted March 2, 2006 Report Share Posted March 2, 2006 I was recently diagnosed with NCS in November of 2005 at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. I often have blackouts, as many as ten or more a day during a bad week. Yet, sometimes during these "bad" weeks my arms and legs become extremely weak, especially my legs, to the point to were it becomes very difficult to walk. The weakness usually lasts about a week or so and then I slowly regain my strength. My question is do any of you experience this and if so is there any way to speed your recovery, or external factors I should be avoiding that sets this chain of events, or what I refer to now as a crash in motion? It seems as though a couple days before my legs turn to jello I begin to lose my balance and walk like I am drunk. I have tried to use a cane during these times but it seems like all the cane does is trip me up even further while not providing me with enough support to walk. I have recently thought about using a wheelchair but find they are insanely expensive and I have no idea what would be the best type to use.Thanks ahead of time for any advice you may have.
