Driving And Foot Drop.

Driving And Foot Drop.

Hi everyone. I have been driving for over 30 yrs., and not feeling very comfortable driving anymore. I have foot drop on my right side, and wondering if people taking Baclofen who have foot drop have noticed any
improvement?

Hello, I haven't really driven since 2013.. However after about 4 years my foot drop is improving. I noticed riding around in my wheelchair put no pressure on the bottom of my foot and my foot got lazier. Now I fight with my foot to make sure it get s pressure on it. I have just started to drive again.. Short distances.. when I feel my best. I bought a Tesla.. I feel so safe with all the alerts, self driving mode (haven't used that) that I feel very confident. I also drive about 20-25 miles an hour.. The speed limit is about 25 to30.. I have also with my realization bumped up my foot exercises. I'm currently searching for a brace to wear at night that will keep my foot at 100 degrees.

Mary, I’ve not seen the movie, but I’ve heard it’s great! Yes sometime I plan to see it! I pray for many things, but I never prayed for a scooter! A friend who went to my church, died a few months ago. Her husband had bought it for her and he passed away before she did. So, the brother-in-law goes to my church as well, he came to my house, asked if I had an electric wheelchair, The answer was no! He said I have Donna’s scooter in my truck and it’s yours if you want it. So I felt like God gave me something that I didn’t even ask for. I am still using a rollater for walking. The scooter is great for long distance. I am encouraged by the word of God. I am trying to have joy every day. The Bible talks so much about joy. The joy of the Lord is my strength. There’s so many Promises in the Bible. I find that when I’m frustrated, then I’m stressed and that affects me and my friends and family. God is a God of love. I know He loves us. John 3:16. He gives me strength every day, to make it through the day. Isaiah 40:29. 2 Corinth.12:9. I Hope You get your strength from the word! Yes, God is a good God! Have a great day, Regina
