Besides the fibro. I also have severe degenerative disc disease with a herniated lumbar disc. I actually think it’s this that makes walking and standing difficult for me. My overall body aches and pains are definitely the fibro, but my right leg giving out is the disc impinging on the right nerve root. Maybe without that I wouldn’t need a scooter, but I don’t know. I think the fibro came after the herniated discHi Marlyn: I have severe form of fibro myself, and struggle with the question to use an ECV or not! We go to WDW once a year. I usually start a "training" program 3 months before, consisting of going to the gym for treadmill use 3 x a week. I also take walks when the weather permits.
But I just can't get myself to commit to a scooter. I know I will be more comfortable, but I usually just walk with frequent rests. I also take prescribed pain pills. I always use an ECV in Epcot because there is no way I can walk around WS without one, but that's all.
So glad you had a great time with the scooter. It sounds like you had a good trip, even with the heat
A training plan doesn’t work for me as increased walking etc causes my leg to give out
