@ethanmcconkey Thank you for placing me in the correct category. Before the back surgery I had sciatica and numbness in my left leg. I also had butt pain. I was pretty much bedridden. After the first surgery my left foot didn't land where my brain was expecting [...]

Reply on 1 year anniversary of TKR

@artscaping Chris: I looked up the reclining pigeon, and it is a similar starting position to one of my Sciatica exercises. That also starts with one leg bent, other leg’s ankle crossed over and resting on knee. However, then I was instructed to pull the knee diagonally [...]

Reply on C5-C6 issue affecting my shoulder?

@amywood20 You story is similar to my own. The symptoms and tender spots you've described are mine too. Did you have an injury that caused your spine problem? The reason this may be important is because if a whiplash caused your annular fissure at C5/C6, it may [...]

@irol, @artscaping : Re. pigeon pose —— will try, but the bent inward motion of the knee is the one that still hurts quite a bit. I do a series of easier exercises that my PT suggested 5 years ago to control Sciatica. He [...]

Reply on 1 year anniversary of TKR

@ellerbracke, @contentandwell, Oh dear me no....I can't get my butt to touch my heels. I couldn't even do that before the TKR. I am always working toward that goal even if I never make it. It does release the back and I stretch my [...]

Reply on Final meeting with surgeon before my revision

@babette. It was sort of strange. I had sciatica in my R leg and made the mistake of taking a very long ride (6 hours) and then had to sit for a 2 hours. This is not good for sciatica. The next morning I had incredibly intense [...]

Reply on Having knee replacement: how to prepare and questions about PT

@ellerbracke Thanks for the explanation. I might buy the TKR being the cause because with your physical fitness program you would have been in trouble a long time ago if there had been unevenness. I wonder if you can just “stretch” the good leg. This is [...]

Reply on Having knee replacement: how to prepare and questions about PT

@artscaping : I’ll try to be concise. The hip bursitis (repeated episodes), as well as the gait problems were supposedly caused by differences in leg length. At least, that’s the only thing that was likely to produce those symptoms without any other factors. Whether the TKR was [...]

Reply on Severe pain on TOP of feet

@wisfloj Your comments caught my attention because I had similar symptoms that were caused by spinal cord compression in my neck. An electrical type pain can be caused by pressure on a nerve. I had pain all over my body from this, but it started in my [...]

Reply on Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy?

@margottaylor I have the classic symptoms of neuropathy -- burning, electrical shocks, numbness, lack of balance, etc., and as nerves facilitate small blood vessels, sometimes my feet/hsnfd are white and cold as ice, then bright red and on fire. NOTES: 1) PEA is used to treat a number [...]
