This could be an illness like cancer or rheumatoid arthritis, or a condition such as arthritis, migraines, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, Mental Illness or back pain from a car accident. Approximately 96% of people who live with an illness have an illness that is invisible. These people do no use a cane or any assistive device and may look perfectly healthy on the out side.
