My brain tells my legs to move but they don’t act on the message. That’s what the doctors said. The jury is still out over whether it is due to HD or my brain’s response to some upset. The only way I’ll know is if I get better.
Usually people with HD who have apraxia have it in their arms instead of their legs. In fact, in my limited research thus far, I haven’t found any documentation on apraxia and walking and HD.
I am really grateful to the readers of this blog who encouraged me to seek medical attention. That very night, my husband and I went to Duke Hospital and have just returned today.
With a wheelchair.
But also with a long running set of appointments with a physical therapist who is going to teach me how to walk again.
Apparently, I will be more successful if this is not HD-related.
Therefore, I am praying that I can re-train my brain and walk again soon.
Thanks for your prayers and support.
