When i stand in the one place for any more than 2 or 3 minutes my thighs cramps up as if its being choked. I also have pins and needles in my foot when standing and walking.

If i go for a walk i usually have to stop every 100 metres and squat down or sit on something. Once i get up and start walking again it goes away for another 100 metres.

No real pain when sitting or lyaing down, however when i'm driving and i get out of the car my leg feels as if it is going to seize up...

I've no back pain, just thigh / butt and pins and needles in foot...

Could it be a disc pressing against the nerve ... I'm waiting on my knee xray results and am going to get my spine xrayed next week...



  • rarely had back pain associated with stenosis in the early part of my problems.
    Other than 2 times when my back locked up on me it was all hip, leg and foot pain.
  • I answered your other post, but it was locked due to a duplicate post.

    I'm interested to hear what your results are and what they think is happening.

    Please keep us posted, k?
