Seemed good for 13 minths, hen lower back pai, sciatic pain, pain radiating to pelvic area. Also piercing pain on each side of hip area where leg meets torso. Trying exercises for piriformis muscle. But can't stand for more than 15 minutes without pain. Only can shop if leaning on carriage. Everything from waist down to feet hurts also fibromyalgia. Could go on.
