hi....i hope someone can help explaining what is happening to me.
i have been having severe leg weakness for the past two years to the point that i have extreme difficultie in walking, can t get up from a chair without the use of my arms and going up the stairs without using my arms is impossible. I have no pain, just weakness. at time i feel some tingling sentation running down my legs, mostly after i lay down for a while. the symptons have been there for two years ,some days or better than others.
i have no other symptoms. this symptons are worst when i don t sleep enough or if a drink alcohol.
i ve been to a doctor blood test turned out ok and mri revealed to slightly bulged disc with no nerve impingement.
thanks.

  • Hi I Just Read Your Post Does This Happen Only After Being In A Certain Position (example..lying Down Or Sitting In A Certain Position) Or Is It Happening Everytime You Try To Walk. I Have A Similar Problem But It Is The Worst After Lying Down Or Running Hard Up The Stairs. Have You Seen A Neurologist?

  • I have also have been having difficulties walking after sitting or laying down with no associated pain. My blood tests turned out normal. Physical activity makes my thighs more sore than what I would consider normal. Do you have any idea what could cause the walking difficulties? (I have not experienced any tingling sensations.)
