Default Period for leg recovery, and wheelchair

usually, when i wake up in the morning at working day, my legs are still tired. now, i slept for 2 days (didnt get out of bed), my legs are recovered.
i have als for 2,5 yrs and i still walking without help. step by step, but i do 500 meters. goal is 4000 steps/day.
i know that it will happen one day, but i dont know how and when (wheelchair). suddenly? how? after laying 3 days? simply: cant walk anymore...?
i'm listening to my legs. (un)fortunatelly, still dont hear anything.

Default Re: Period for leg recovery, and wheelchair

You can get your chair before you even think you require it. If it's taking days to recover from a small distance traveled already, it sounds like a chair may be warranted sooner rather than later.

Some people use the chair as a way to foster energy. If you only have a finite number of steps in you before you are too fatigued and need to recover for a day, a wheelchair can help extend the daily activities you can do. For example- Use it while grocery shopping so your legs have the energy to have a nice walk with your family/friends.

Get the chair ASAP. I got mine over six months ago and don't regret it. I don't use it yet but if I were to go somewhere that I needed to walk over 1/2 mile, I would need it.
