Hey guys! So I have a couple of questions that I hope you can chime in on! Please know that I encourage all responses wether negative or positive, to help me out! I also really appreciate all of your responses!!
So I'm diagnosed with fibromyalgia and I'm awaiting a possible diagnosis of EDS Hypermobility. I have a lot of problems with weak and unstable joints, and lately it seems to be getting worse. About a year ago I got silver finger splints for almost all of my fingers, and that's helped a lot, but now other things are bothering me more. My worst problem is my right ankle. Both ankles roll in and make me flat footed (though I actually have high arches), though I have a problem with my right ankle doing it daily. It's causing a lot of pain and I often get too weak to prevent my ankle from suddenly rolling in and making me (sometimes) fall. Similar things happen with my knees as well, only they tend to snap backwards and trip me up. I often accidentally find myself standing with my knees hyperextended and if I do that for too long it makes them so stretched out that it's almost as though I can't control them. Sometimes doing this will make it so that I have to sit with my knees a little bent before I can stand or walk again.
So, my question is, do you guys know any good braces or stabilizers that I could get to help prevent these things from happening?? I've tried the ace stabilizers for both things, and in another brand I can't remember that starts with an m, but they don't actually work for what's happening. Thank you for your input!!!
