Burning pain in legs
« on: June 02, 2010, 03:08:33 AM »
Hi Steve, am using your book and dvd quite a bit. found your book makes the most sense and like your attitude that all (or most) can be fixed. Back pain nearly a thing of past, but flares up every now and then. Suddenly struggling with the horrible burning sensation in areas of my legs again.  feels like all the nerve endings are on fire - usually only right leg, but now very bad in left leg. Possibly because of irritated nerves??

L4/L5  and L5/S1 damaged, disc ruptured but seems to be sorted after 2 years. pinched nerve every now and then - right leg "collapses" (not so funny while playing tennis though  ;D)  Severe backup gone, inflammation mostly gone. doing exercises to correct pelvis tilt.
Where do I start looking? Can't remember what I did last or why it cleared up.

Sounds like you have done some damage to the nerves called the Sciatica.
Place a cold pack on the effected area & consult a chiropractor ASAP.

Thanks, appreciate the advise! nerve(s) definitely not happy. Will try the cold pack, but will skip the chiro (for good reason).   what I do not understand is why it "suddenly" clears up?  for 2 days excruciating pain and then last night, all is well again. posture? only new exercises added again was sit-ups on the gym ball - other stomach exercises seem fine.

Sit ups will put a lot of pressure on the lower  discs and nerves so I wouldn't do these. When it flares up I'd be seeing what you did the day before. The double ball work down the erector spinae muscles is probably the best way to deal with nerve pain going down the legs.

Chiro can irritate it as well.

All the best
