I have been standing a great deal the last few days, and walking back and forth between two buildings at the client we are working with which is a couple of blocks. Doesn't sound like a lot of effort, but my legs have been getting weaker each day. I would hope that using the durn pegs more would make them stronger, but they are just not cooperating.
Today I stood up from sitting in a chair and working on a computer for about 30 minutes and my legs wouldn't move. I couldn't pick my feet up. I couldn't scoot them forward. My body had forward momentum but the legs and feet were glued to the floor where I stood up. I don't have good sensation in my feet but this was different. It was like sending a message to the feet - move Move MOVE - and they weren't paying attention. The legs weren't asleep (as from a pinched nerve) they just weren't obeying.
I caught myself on the desk where I stood since I was my generally hell bent on getting somewhere self and had started moving my whole body forward, not realizing my legs were nailed to the ground. I felt like I was in a cartoon where the feet move in a blur but you don't go anywhere. I thought if I only had that bongo sound effect I could just skedaddle and get going!!! Pyoooooiiing!!
