I feel my RD getting very much worse, how long before I will need a wheelchair?

I can hardly walk anymore. I feel like I am going to fall and have to have a cart when shopping.

    Sorry to hear you are struggling sharoncookie57. First let me say that any new symptom, specifically something as potential serious as balance, should be brought to the attention of your doctor. In this article one of our contributors discusses balance issues, with some tips for how to improve: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/danger-falling-objects/. Finally, let me note that your concerns are completely understandable, but also mobility devices have come a long way. When necessary they can do much to add to a persons level of mobility and freedom. Hope this information is useful and know that you are always welcome here for support. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
