I've been experiencing so much joint pain recently, and on top of it, my pots seems to be getting worse. I'm having such a hard time standing up. I want to find things that help, but it's so hard. I've tried adjusting my diet to add more salt and electrolytes, and it hasn't helped enough. I've tried compression socks, again, without any luck. I want to look into mobility aids, but I'm not sure where to start. and, even if I find one that helps, I'm not sure how to get past the stigma. I know my family wouldn't understand. so how do i find one that helps, but also, how do I get myself to actually use it?

      I don't know where exactly to look but you can start by ordering one on Amazon! Use that until you can get approved for a custom mobility aid by your doctor

To find a mobility aid that helps, consider trying braces for various joints, such as wrists, ankles, and knees. You can also look into using a walker or wheelchair on bad days. KT tape might be helpful for stabilizing joints and reducing pain. As for overcoming the stigma, it's essential to prioritize your well-being and comfort over others' opinions. Remember that using a mobility aid is meant to improve your quality of life, and seeking support from understanding friends or online communities can help you feel more confident in your decision.
