I've had lower back apin, but it goes and come. Some have said that it's sciatica. I'm getting chiropractic treatment and it's helping. The severe pain in my left knee & calf has gone, but I don't have much strength in that leg, especially when I get up in the morning. I'm afraid.
The back pain has been gone for 10 years. I just moved about a year ago (I lost my home to foreclosure).. Where I'm staying, the bed has a very old mattress & box spring on it. The chiropractor thinks that this is the origin of my pain. Unfortunately, I'm still sleeping on that old mattress. Could it be that simple?. I've never experienced this strange feeling in my left leg. When I drive for several hours, I get out of the car and I can barely stand. I have become worried that it may be something more serious than an old mattress. Could it be the onset of MS. No one in my family has that. I weighed over 300 pounds, but I have been in good health - normal blood pressure, good blood sugar (under100), good cholesterol (with HDL being greater than the average), etc.
