There are a few things that I did and it benefitted me.I set up a reminder in my Outlook calendar to remind me every 10-15 minutes to get up from my PC and move around in the room. Another thing which i did was started stretching exercises in the morning and also for some time in the evening.

I have had lower back pain just above and around my hips. It s more painful if I m bending down, and sitting. The best remedy for it seems to be walking but even then I have slight pain. I ve always had back problems but am usually able to get rid of it through. Message, excercise or chiropractic. I ve spent $600 already on these things and still gave severe pain around my hips...sometimes the pain travels to my neck. What could be causing this pain?

Hi! For the last 18 months my back pain has increased, to the point of limping. Doctors did not exactly diagnose me wity eny specific thing. My MRI shows severe recess spinal stenosis at l4-5. I have been at the hospital several times with debilitating pain. Now the pain has spread all the way to my feet, the worst pain comes at eny time I try to rest, no matter day or night. The other problem I have is the way I find my self wetting my under pants or the urgency to urinate and no sure if urine is coming out till I hear it falling. Cant get up from the sofa or chair eith out help, or with out pain. The back of my neck also started to get numb and very painful, my arms also like my legs have lost almost all strainght. Please help me understand. Iam 54 female. Thank you maria

I am 51 years old male. one year back one day I suffered at my work place a moment of giddiness with a little loss of memory like forgetting the day and it s date and computer password etc. After 15 minutes of taking an antacid it came to normal. After that through investigations I was diagnosed with gall stone and spondilytes. I took medicines but not of much help. Now I feel pain in the neck muscles and with a little giddiness. Is it really a mere spondilytes or any thing related to nerve or brain ?

my 12 yr old daughter Alexis has had severe back pain, leg pain, neck pain, fatigue, shortness of breath and generally just feeling unwell for 2 months. All blood tests came back normal except for 2 Lyme titers which came back positive. However the dr feels this is a false positive and wants to run another test in 3 months. He doesn t want to start her on antibiotics.

I have a pins & needles feeling deep into my left armpit that radiates down the inside of my arm to my elbow, several times during the day. Occasionally while this is happening, i will also have burning pain in the same shoulder - rotator cuff area radiating down the outside of the arm to the elbow. When this happens suddenly and is intense it scares me into thinking I may be having a heart attack, but I don't have any other symptoms, no shortness of breath, no heavyness, no sweats, otherwise I am a healthy 51 year old female. I thought it could be a pinched nerve, but would it come on so suddenly, last for about 15 mins, then subside. This first happened 6 months ago and then again 2 weeks ago. I don't have any neck pain when this happens. Can you have a pinched nerve w/o neck pain?
