Leg pain better w/ movement -- spine related?



  • hi,
    i have c5/6 radiculopathy (diagnosed with mri, nerve tests came back ok) - and the burning in my right arm gets better (goes completely) with movement. not sure if running or "proper exercise" would help, but walking and moving around definitely does - in fact i normally try and move around as much as possible. sitting really aggravates things - and sometimes standing around, but not moving about enough does too... lying down is good though.

    So, YES, spinal pain can improve with movement... though everyone is different.... - and my spinal condition (herniation due to exercise related injury) may not be comparable to yours...

    good luck...

  • I was diagnosed with similar issues when i was 23. The best thing i did for four year was stay active. Keep working out strengthen your core etc. Mine evetually got worst this year to shere i could not work out anymore and i will tell you what its all down hikl from there. I have had 3 back surgeries this year have lost my mobility and freedom for the most part and am scheduled for a fusion in 2 weeks. Stay active and do everything you can to stay away from operations. Look into hot laser treatment as well that helped me get by for a bit.
