I can walk short distances only and with difficulty.
I feel that I have lost about 40 or 50% the strength of my legs...
Pain on my lower back mainly, but it “changes locations”.
Sometimes my buttocks hurt; and or my thighs or legs...
I feel quite clumsy and also have difficulty sleeping and feel depressed on a daily basis.
