Strange leg situation right now

This part is a new symptom...and I am hoping this is something that others may say is not out of the ordinary for stenosis. My legs don't function normally today. When I stand I have to wait a while until I walk or they don't walk at all. This is when it really bites to not have a doctor with whom I can put "all the cards on the table" but those days are gone. Is this something that is normal for stenosis, or is this a situation in which to have a complete panic attack? I will call the new ortho tomorrow on this but really hate to start down another valley with it at all. What to do, oh what to do. LOL

  • my leg goes like that too like a pause and can't walk for a few seconds mainly because the weakness of one leg. If it's longer than a few seconds yes i would call the Orthosurgeon if this is something new for you. May as well clear it with him since you've found a good Dr. Charry

  • I'm sorry to hear of the leg problems you're having. Did you contact an ortho? Do you have an appointment? How are the symptoms, the same?

    Please keep us updated.
  • Maybe I need to rethink my confidence in the new ortho.

    I had a very huge fight with not ending it all a few weeks back. Seems to me I made a bad choice then. SO tired of all of this. Thanks Cath and Charry for having answered. I am grateful for your thoughts.
