    Hi Jeff, I think you would be best served by going to an orthopedic specialist for your condition. There are several possibilities why this is happening but I do not want to hazard a guess. Hope things work out for the best for you.....

    Question Re: legs collapse

    Thanks for the reply from Los Vegas. I have been to an orthopedic doctor and a pain doctor, and a neurologist. Looking for other options. Thinking maybe Acupuncturist.

    Any other ideas will be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    J B

    Hi, out of those three doctors, did any of them give you a diagnosis? Possible diagnosis? If you want a different perspective try and find a doctor of Chinese medicine that practices acupuncture. They practice a more holistic approach in their treatment of the human body and also offer holistic type medications. Years ago I had a terrible inflammation and while the conventional MDs had me on a medication merry go round, the Chinese doctor got right to the root of my problem and cured me.

    Re: legs collapse

    I have stenos us in the back/spinal column, one slipped disc. I have had steroids injected to the back. Two doctors suggest operation. I am currently working with someone to strengthening of my pelvis. I have given thought to acupuncture. I have not talked to someone yet. The falling is a real problem because I do not know when it will happen and it is embarrassing.

    Hi jeff, What kind of surgery suggested for your back? Any other leg symptoms like numbness in feet, pins needles, radiating pain down leg from back, etc?
