Weak legs??!!

My legs just feel really really weak...they don't hurt so much, it just feels like their heavy..it's weird...I get it more when I sit down and it is realived by walking..and streching makes it feel good.

I do have lower back/neck problems..I discussed it awhile ago that I found out my spine is not in the place it should be...lol..my neck is bending forward, so my lower back is going backwards trying to pull it back..sounds confusing, but you could tell on the x-rays that my curve isn't right.

Well, I guess I'm trying to ask is if my feeling of weak legs is due to my back?? I forgot to ask my doc, and it's too late to call..anybody know?

Re: Weak legs??!!

I don't know for sure but it certainly sounds as if your back could very well be the culprit. I have that too, I think it's stenosis that causes mine, Fly had stenosis so bad she could not walk!

Sorry for your worry and inability to Rch the Dr now, please call his nurse this morning and see what she says.

Keep us posted

My Legs Are So Weak Too. I Can't Walk Up Stairs Unless I Hang On To Something. I Have Been Going To A Chiro But It's Not Really Helping. I Am Getting Really Worried. Is It My Back Or Something Else.

Re: Weak legs??!!

It was a very weak left leg that led the Docs to find via MRI my Dx of 4 Herniated Discs, Stenosis, Sclerosis and thecal sac impingement. So, your problem could very easily be back related.

Certainly ask the Doc on Monday and request an MRI.
