    I have trouble lifting things over 10 lb. Walking makes my legs go numb. I have a place on my back between my shoulder blade and my spine that is in constant pain no matter what I'm doing. Sometimes it's so bad that it goes all the way through to my chest.

    My condition is causing me loose business. I sell Tupperware and I can not get out there and walk around, stand at events, fairs, festivals, in order to sell my products. I have to be able to stand and walk while I talk to my customers.
    I have to be able to set up party�s, tents, tables for my events. I have bending unloading, loading and 1 hour into alll of it, I�m hurting and I still have to set the tables up and organize it all to get the day started in like 2 hrs.
