Hello,

My AVM is in my right ankle, and I know exactly what you mean about being in terrible pain after working. I am a full time student and I work. I can't avoid walking all over campus, but I try to find jobs where I don't have to be on my feet all day, and find that that helps sometimes. But yes, I've had to work jobs where I'm standing for eight hours and am immobile for the rest of the day, and even days after if its really bad. I wasn't even aware this condition was covered by disability, do we know for sure it is?

Carly
