Fibromyalgia and walking aids, do they help ?

Good evening.
I was diagnosed almost a year ago with fibro and cfs , since then I have become progressively worse, more so with nighttime pain , restless legs and really bad stiffness in my legs. I work full time (currently on furlough due to covid) . I am unable to take painkillers due to stomach issues , I am on Amatrypaline.  My partner thinks I should see my GP about getting a stick or crutches because when my legs are stiff I stumble a lot and struggle to keep my balance , my question is, would they actually help, and would my gp give me one for fibro stiffness? I would like to say I am keeping fairly active during lockdown, doing short walks when possible and gentle stretching along with some low impact exercise when I'm having a good day,Many thanks
