Hi..i hd been operated for discetomoy at L4-5 level around 15 yrs ago. since thn, i m unable to stand at one place for more than 5-7 mins and need to move around or sit. later MRIs show fiberosis at L4-5 which is compresing left leg nerve. I hv no problems in walking for even 45 mins, bt i m not able to stand even for shorter durations. now to add to it, i am diagnosed with having fibermyalgia too for upper right limb...any advice?

The numbness that I'm having has been like this for a month or so. My problem starts at L5/S1 and the nerve at L3 is pinched also, this was after having the EMG testing done.
