What is your approach to reduce negative impact of foraminostenosis? I have pain in both legs and butt muscles, can’t run properly and my feet might get less sensitive. The issue is on L4/L5 and L5/S1. I was told to excersise which I started. But what else can be done?

      Oh, I do a little upper body weight lifting and focus on the ab muscles because they hold up your spine.

      Do whatever you can to put happiness and positivity into your life. Whether it be music, movies, tv, writing,... I find my pain gets worse when I'm feeling bad, especially tired, sad... I'm in a position where at this time no doctors can help me. I'm in between needing surgery and sticking to physical therapy. I also, when pain gets too bad, use delta 8 or cannabis if I have to. I'm allergic l, so I try not too. But even if that doesn't work I head to the ER for shots of pain medication.
