Does anyone use a rollator when they are going to be out somewhere for a long time? I can’t stand and walk around for longer than 2 hours before I start to get lightheaded, dizzy, and feel weak.

      I use a rollator. It's so helpful especially for doctors appointments where there's a lot of standing/ walking/ sitting/ walking. Ohh and lines like at the grocery store

      I thought about it but decided on a seat cane. it is a cane that can fold out into a chair so i can rest when I need to. on days that I'm having worse symptoms i take my wheelchair because I know any walking even with support might be too much. it has handles so my bf can push me if it's a day where i absolutely need to go somewhere when I would normally be bedridden

      I use a rollator, and I’ve found it to be very helpful! It’s not perfect, but it definitely gives me some freedom

      Got it, well depending on your symptoms, I take fludrocortisone in addition to propranolol and the combination works wonders for me

      I am not. I don’t see my cardiologist until 4/4/22 and I think even then she’s going to want to run more tests before she does.

      I don’t, are you on any medication currently? I’ve had a lot help from my new meds.
