I walk several miles a day for exercise but over

I walk several miles a day for exercise but over the last 2 months both of my legs feel like like they are getting weak. I'm 60 yrs old/male and in good health.I also notice when I walk up a flight of stairs my legs feel tired. I have had a history of back problems but this doesn't feel anything like it because I have no pain.This has come on pretty quickly and really concerns me.

I have recently been diagnosed with severe osteoporosis and I don t know much about it. I have severe pain and am taking Morphine for it. I am walking 4 to 5 miles per day I heard walking is good. I am afraid of taking classes like yoga or strengthening exercises for fear I will break something or do something wrong.Please advise me regarding exercise.Thank you.

Is it possible for two weeks of exercise to lower blood pressure? 49 yo male, six feet tall and 250 pounds. Have led pretty much a couch potatoe lifestyle the last five years (work related, lots of sitting, not much if any exercise). My blood pressure the last two years has been 150 over 100 (average). Can t afford a doc, no insurance. So don t go there. Last two weeks I started playing golf, usually walk 3 hours or 3 miles on the course in hot 90 degree weather. Also started eating oatmeal regularly last two weeks, and a better selection of foods. Also cut out all my coffee. Before, was drinking about 6 cups a day. Yeah, was headed for a heart attack. May still be. Question, with that info, all of a sudden my blood pressure is sitting at an average 120/80 with a pulse of it possible that in two weeks of no caffiene, lots of exercise and 8 hours sleep instead of 5-6 that my blood pressure would drop this much? Or are these false readings that won t hold up going forward?

I am a 50 year old male. I am 5 foot 10 and weigh 190 pounds and so a bit overweight . I walk about 3-4 miles a day and work on the 4th floor. I never use the lift. I used to do cardio work outs at home until i had a tendon injury and got out of the habit. About ten days ago I started again on my cross trainer. I have upped my water consumption to about 4-5 pints a day. My blood pressure is usually about 118/70 with a resting heart rate of about 76. When I exercise I usually go at it quite hard, music on and I get myself to mildly breathless but I sweat a lot (always have). 2 minutes after getting off the machine my blood pressure might be down around 80/60. I don t feel too bad, a little shaky maybe. It is now 10 hours since I had my last 90 minute bash on the machine and my BP is still only 108/66. Is it usual for BP to really drop like this during exercise?
