a little concerned
i have been having issues with my walking etc for about a year now. when i first went to my doctor he said that my nerves were irritated which may of been causing the problems but over the months it has been getting a little worse but as i suffer with an anxiety disorder i am sure this is contributing to the worsening of symptoms. i have had muscle tension for years which certainly does not help. i say this because i have been doing my relaxation techniques and the symptoms do become less severe. the symptoms i notice are- when i walk i can feel my neck and shoulder area go tight (dull aching pain) and i feel when this happens thats when my legs begin to feel weak and heavy ( like lead ) thighs especially, i have had sciatica but the relaxation seems to help that as i have felt the muscles relaxing, i do have a numb sensation in my right hand which has eased a little over the months and hardly notice it sometimes, tight muscles in the head, difficulty walking up the stairs (not all the time ) pain at the bottom of my foot, tightness at the top of my feet but again doesn't hurt and only noticable when i have my shoes on, no problems with driving although getting out of the car on occasion has caused problems. i do have to have a good stretch. i think maybe i have problems in my lower and upper back
i have been to see a neuro and going for an mri scan next week
can these symptoms be caused through the neck by nerve irritation/compression?
any feedback would be great
