I need a sheepish face here. Anyway I was reading a thread in general nursing about the pain that nurses develop in their feet, legs, and hips. Well, the thing is, I already have joint problems. In my hips, feet, knees, fingers, wrists, and back. I asked my doctor about it. He felt my fingers and told me nothing was wrong. So I'm angry at him for ignoring my concerns. There are days when I literally do not want to go to one of my classes because I have to climb a lot of stairs. I'm only 18 so it's probably nothing.
But anyway is it possible for me to be a nurse if I already have pain? Are there nursing positions that are easier on the body?
