Fortunately, it did not start until after age 50 and has been slowly progressive. Ambulation is now becoming more of a problem, and I have begun relying on a walker for balance and using my arm strength. My walking distance is also limited by my shortness of breath, a holdover from my pulmonary emboli.
Driving is still possible however, because my lower legs and arms are still strong, so I can steer, accelerate, and brake without difficulty. My Mitsubishi Endeavor SUV is a big help because it has a high center of gravity, and the seats are at the perfect level that are even with my backside for sitting down and getting out of the vehicle.
