What Is The Best Type Of Walking Stick To Use To Steady Myself On Wobbly Days Considering That My Wrists And Elbows Hurt?

I feel as though I am falling when I am out on my own and am losing my confidence.Does using a walking stick help or does it cause people more hand,wrist and elbow pain?

@A MyFibroTeam Member. You can find them at a pharmacy. Healtcare supply store. Usually someone there can help you to size it proplerly.

I have read some comments about thier wrist hurting. It isn't meant to hold your weight like a crutch does. If you use it like that you will hurt your wrist. It helps me to keep steady so I don't fall over.

Keep smiling ...

I use a cane . my husband says I should get a quad cane cause i keep knocking it on the floor when i sit down. It does help me with balance and takes the pressure off my sciactica when i walk.

So when you say walking stick do you mean what I call a cane? I'm asking because I met a guy with a walking stick that was as tall as he was. He chose it because that way he stood straight and didn't bend over as he might with a cane. If you could maybe that would help you.
