    I don't do much, walk a few blocks, very little house work. The injection & pain meds somewhat help. I can walk 1 block to church but no farther without excruciating pain. Causes me SOB, pain radiates down my hip, thigh & even my foot. I don't have a good quality of life, I am alone & don't get out but once a week for church. I am still in severe pain at night, I have insomnia, have severe chronic RLS so I go from being up a couple nights to sleeping day & night couple times a week. It's one exterme or another. Can't do anything without severe pain
