Folks im so sorry to moan again but I plea to All and everyone to help me in any beat this living Hell I have ALL day and ALL night


My story I started power walking and becoming obsessed about being thin fit and healthy, pounding the streets passing miles of traffic as I felt like a true Athlete

Pounding with sweat and beating the clock made me feel on top of the world

In January this year I Los my balance just slightly and its December and anything to do with my legs is a living hell

I get spamsm suddenly, can feel the pulse at times so definite in my legs

I get tingling all down under the skin

When I get up in the morning and off long journeys their so tight I feel im walking like some Robot instead of a human being

It's sometimes feels like a marathon just putting the right leg foward then the left leg

To walk from aisles to aisles in a supermarket is an ordeal

Everything is just so difficult im only a 38 year old young man and sometimes wander how long I can cope with this

I just want to walk pain free and get rid of the incredible tight legs, their so locked and stuff it's unbearable

I've been for X Rays, neurology and much to my dismay 5 different Pysiothreapist with not much conclusion from anyone or whatever it is

How can something so small injury in January cause a year of hell

I just want to be a normal human being again instead of feeling I should be in a wheelchair

Im desperate to get fit and miss that Europhic feeling

As mad as it may sound I want to go back to Zumba and Aerobics I know people say that's high impact but I loathe weights cycling or swimming

Im just forcing these legs to work, if I force them like a friend things could I loose the use of them forever??

If Anyone out their knows any CURE, anything to walk pain free, to walk without popping and to walk without feeling your on a leash and your legs are pulling you back to halt to a standstill I'll be eternally grateful

Love to everyone

You don't realise time until you haven't your health

Love Kristian xxxxx

    Before the cure comes the diagnosis, which it doesn't sound like you have gotten. An MRI should be the next step in order to figure out what is damaged. Then they should be able to give you treatment options. Good luck!

    I know you said you didn't like swimming. But it is a easy, low impact way to excessive and will give you a work out. My doc had me do it. I just took it real easy first time. After a hour I got out of the pool and could hardly stand. Lol. Was a good work out.

    I agree with Dee, you must push to get an MRI and it's only then you will have an answer and be able to do something about it. Good luck Kristian, hope you find out what's wrong

    Hi Kristian , You sure are having a  rough time. I am just wondering if you have seen an orthopedic surgeon & have an MRI done  yet ? They seem to show up a lot more  so the Doctor  can make a better / easier diagnosis. Also maybe in the meantime buy a knee suopport  as it may help a little bit. I presume you are some sort of painkillers maybe ask your Doctor if you need something different.

    Kristian, check out the telemedicine application Doctor Pocket, you can send your scans to a high profile Harvard Radiologist and you'll be talking in real-time with them within 24 hours.

    "I get spamsm suddenly, can feel the pulse at times so definite in my legs...I get tingling all down under the skin."

    A few years back, I had pain radiating down one leg.  Basically sciatica.  Pain shots, chiropractor, PT did not relieve it.  Had an MRI and went to the best neurosurgeon in town (Note: NOT a neurologist).  The MRI, as always with me, was inconclusive.  He knew it was sciatic nerve related so he went in and focused on L4 through S1.  He found a bone spur literally "crushing" (his word) the sciatic nerve as it exited the spinal cord.

    Got rid of the spur and shaved back the calcified disk at L5/S1.  Walked out of the hospital; after a few days recovery, I walked again with zero pain.  I'm no doc but this sounds very familiar.  Sounds like you threw something out in your spine in the same area and have impacted the sciatic nerve.

    As Dee has said: "Before the cure comes the diagnosis."  I would suggest the same course as I followed...MRI then a good neurosurgeon.  These are the brain and spine guys/gals.  Don't go to anyone else.  If it truly is just like my sciatic nerve case, it's a simple surgical fix with zero after effects.  Hope this helps.
