As for spinal stenosis, I’m way to young to not stand up straight as if age should be a factor🤷🏻‍♀️.. I find it so difficult to stand up properly without the urge to bend slightly to ease the pressure I get in the upper middle part of my back. They call it shopping cart syndrome. I can walk all day if I had one.. I used to walk regularity but it’s a struggle because my spine is narrowing

    I'm the same as you both and it's so embarrassing. I'm only 63 already and this spinal stenosis is ruining my life. The Dr. won't operate. I do nerve blocks for pain management every two weeks. This helps me minimally. When I go shopping I have to ride in the electric shopping cart. I grateful to be alive but this is just a travesty

    It’s terrible. There has to be something that can be done

    What my orthopedic Dr suggested which was epidural injections - my insurance won't approve unless I jump thru hoops and do other stuff that doesn't seem helpful

      that’s because EVERYONE wants to profit off of your pain

        ugh. I know! It's so ridiculous. There's no care for the actual person being jerked 5 different ways. I really like my primary Dr. I feel she cares, but her hands are tied in so many ways too.

    You know I'm not sure, he mentioned it and before we got to discuss it in depth my insurance shot it down.

      I have been trying to make a -painful effort to stand up straight. But at this point it hardly matters, I can only stand or walk for a couple minutes anyway
