Yes, my question is what would cause stiffness and difficulty
pain in my lower back, and poor circulation in my feet? After walking
around for 30 minutes or so the pain subsides but the stiffness remains. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Possible conditions like Arthritis, spinal cord stenosis may be considered.
Hello and welcome to "Ask a Doctor" service.
I have read your query and here is my advice.
Low back pain, stiffness and difficulty walking may result from conditions such as arthritis, spinal cord stenosis, Parkinson's, etc.
The correct diagnosis is achieved after a complete medical workup that includes clinical examination, imaging studies of your lumbar spine ( dynamic x-rays and MRI), and lab tests for autoimmune activity levels and arthritis.
Please discuss with your Doctor about getting evaluated further.
Treatment depends on the clinical findings, investigations and the exact diagnosis.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
