    I read your post where you said you use elbow crutches.

    I limp most of the time walking and have balance problems. I tend to have to hold onto the desk, wall, etc. when I first stand.

    I was just wondering how your doctor came about ordering you the crutches?

    I have mentioned to my rheumy several times about the balance problems and having to hold onto shopping carts, etc. to walk but he seems to just pass over it as though it isn't as important as other problems but it is embarrasing to stumble around like I am drunk.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
