Three motor vehicle accidents over 30 yrs & a back injury at work in the mix. Overweight. Physical therapy, exercise, anti-inflammatory meds, massage, & chiropractor kept me under control. Recent increase in pain. Dr ordered an MRI showing spinal stenosis. Lost 70 lbs to date & pain improved but moving around with new symptoms & radiating down back of legs to knees.
