Sorry about that, computer being weird. I try not to push my activity level to hard. I do a little today, a little tomarrow, and sometimes take a break in between for a day or 2. Some people call me lazy but sometimes you need to make your self slow down and not be in rush to get somthing done. I also try hot showers, and losts of rest the day before i do anything heavy, or stressfull. Sometimes if you can find a comfort zone, and keep track of when you start hurting during your tasks you can learn to understand when it is time to stop before it is to late. I am a person that likes to get a task done once i start it, but sometimes you just need to walk away and finish it later.

Dear ratdog

Welcome and thanks for your question - I'm sorry you have been dealing with so much pain for so long.

What have your doctors told you about your condition? The reason I ask is that it could be so many things that are causing all your pain. You could have a problem with your sciatic nerve (that kind of pain goes from your back, down your legs and is extremely painful), or a pinched nerve, a problem with your spine or something like RA (rheumatoid arthritis).

Is your pain stemming from after your surgery, or did you had it before?

Have you had blood tests done? What are your doctors telling you about a diagnosis?

Sorry to ask you so many questions but combined back and leg pain could mean any number of things and we need to know a little more, especially with regard to what your surgeon and other health care providers are telling you.

I hope to hear back from you!
