I am new to your forum and would like to get an opinion from those of you who have leg conditions. I started having weakness in my legs a few years ago, and now it has gotten worse. I have a hard time with stairs, getting on and off of buses, and other thing that puts pressure on my legs. I am accident prone and have to be careful since it is very easy to trip or fall. My legs do not feel painful, except one time when it was real COLD and I almost fell trying to get on a bus. Other than that I really don't have any pain. I haven't gotten a medical diagnosis yet. I do have an appt. next month with my doctor, so I will find out then. Do any of you with this type of a problem get treatment for this, and if you do what type of treatment do you get (physical therapy, medicine, etc.) I am not trying to diagnose myself;however, I am just trying to see if my problems match up with those of some of you.
