I am a 37 year old mother of two and started having nerve pain in both legs after hurting my back seven months ago picking up my one year old. I have tried all the stereotypical things of course. I do have a L5/S1 herniation and loss of disc height. I have been working TMS for the past two weeks and have seen some success. My ankle had been hurting for no reason and I've been able to make that go away. My problem is that since I've started being more active and been sitting/bending, etc, my pain has increased, especially at night. It's this horrible ache/nerve pain that goes down through my hips/glutes and then into the back of the thighs, calves, and also in the front thighs and knees. I am just losing my confidence and worrying that somehow this is related to my "injury" or something. Bending/sitting/ don't seem to cause any horrible symptoms while doing them, but when I'm resting the pain seems to amp up.
If anyone has any encouragement, support, etc. I would love to hear it!
