Spastica diplegia in adults
I'm 39 and have a diagnosis of spastica diplegia as a child I had my Achilles' tendon stretched in both legs and my left big toe straightened. I was also treated with splints and callipers on my left leg. As an adult it was discovered my knee caps are too high (practically in my thighs) and dislocate once needing to be surgically repaired. Following the birth of my third child (5 months) I developed tendonitis in my right ankle. I suffer constant pain in both legs and knees, hands and arms which this lump in my ankle is just contributing to. My Drs just seem to fob me off with cocodomal and don't seem to believe how much pain I'm actually in. My mobility is worsening and I'm falling over my feet more because I'm getting tired quicker so my feet turn in more. Sorry for the ramble but does anyone have any advice regarding medication, splints or even homeopathic remedies I'm due back to work in September as a shop assistant I can't afford not to go back and I'm worried about how I'll manage. I just want to play with my two little boys and go shopping with my teenage daughter more easily without worrying about how the simplest of tasks will affect me in an hour. Thank you
