Or any sort of joint problems and manage with dogs still? I have a doctors appointment on weds to be referred to wherever it is I need to be referred to and I am really hopeing it is something that is going to be manageable Since I have been about 18 I use to get a pain in my knee. Wasn't ever so bad I can't walk (well it hasn't been yet) but sort of like so I had to limp a wee while (like a few yards) and then it was fine again. But it has been getting worse and now I get it in my elbows and wrists too. Again never been so bad I can't walk but I have had to let go Dave's lead once but now I wear a belt and the leads are hooked to me just in case, though that hasn't happened since. My knee's only use to hurt when it was cold. And only when I had been walking. Now they hurt the first time I go out the house and its near enough every day. Not so bad I have to limp but its still sore. I am scared that I will have to stop walking as much. I love my job walking dogs and I want to expand but obviously I can't do that if my doctor or whoever I am refered to says I shouldn't walk as far. My dogs get a good walk and off lead run each day, and I do plenty of training, I have agility once a week and so far my knee only been sore there once but I just get on with it because its for my dog. My knee was in agony last night when I was out with Dixie but well I couldn't really stop her walk in the middle of some random field! Lol Even just now, typing on my laptop my left elbow almost feels like I have strained it I also get a really bad pain in the bottom of my back that I have to hold my breath so as not to move. I hope this doctor comes up with something.
