    Has anyone has experience using knee compression sleeves/supports to add stability to
    everyday walking...? I have tried them and they seem to add a bit of support...Just wanted to hear others using them....

    I have those big black things that can be adjusted for tightness and use them for tasks on the farm like picking up after a storm. The stop and go tasks including some bending, they seem to increase endurance along with those braces like construction workers wear around their waist. even though I am only out for about five to fifteen minutes, taking longer to get ready than to perform a task, they seem to take up some of the slack. Using a cane when I am out among people is less pitying and is great for standing in line at the checkout counter if I dont use a cart. Glucosamine is also a plus for those damp achy days. Now that I think about it, I have so many aids if I put them all in one place it would look like a kids play room. Compression braces for my forearms, braces for my arms, back knees ankles, inversion table, rollers for my back and arms, massagers, etc. Sometimes it is expensive to try everything especially without a prescription but anything that you think might give some relief even temporary is great in my book, try it you may like it, if you can afford it. I even have a container filled with rice kernels that I heat in the microwave to use to immerse my hands in to get some relief.  'Whatever gets you through the night is alright'.

    i have a suggestion- this is only me thinking out loud and thinking of you ✌🏼
     if you have a neurologist and they know of your knees bothering you, maybe they can prescribe physical therapy and or possibly physical therapist  can recommend other aids for you, for your knees. I also have weak knees, ankles.  I am fuming around to ride physical therapy for me for my yeast ankles, therapy to help me get stronger on my lower limb and my stomach and back. 😊😊😊✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼❀️❀️❀️It helps a lot, you’d be surprised, I was.  I  Learned a lot at therapy, she is such a sweetheart and a hard as .  She mentioned to me, if you can use it without compromise then make it stronger, i.e. my knees my ankles my back Etc.✌🏼❀️😊✌🏼❀️😊✌🏼❀️😊✌🏼❀️😊✌🏼❀️😊✌🏼❀️😊
     even if your neurologist can  prescribe any aids, get physical therapy along with it so you know how to use it properly and still get strong, and learn all the things you can from physical therapy.  You deserve it.We know you can do it.
