I went on a massage machine for my feet and after 20minutes on that two weeks ago I got up and was stiff and could not move my legs. they were like lead. Since then it has been two weeks and I am not that much better. I am small framed and have always been super active before this happened. I have had all kinds of tests and no one knows what is causing it. They say it is anxiety. I don't think so.

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for posting!

I'm sorry this has happened to you. I'm glad you saw a doctor and tests have been taken to rule out (likely) anything serious. Still, it's not solving your problem. Have you looked into any alternative treatments, such as Chiropractic or Acupuncture? Some people have been helped by Alternative therapies. It might be worth looking into if nothing else has helped.

We hope you feel better soon.
