... at night for severe nerve pain down my r/leg. I have been diagnosed with Stenosis and waiting to see a specialist. Nothing seems to touch the pain and not feeling myself. I get 3 -3 4 hours sleep at a time . Also am afraid of falling due to unsteady gait. I am a 69 year old man. This condition has risen due to ruptured discs in 1968. Other times it has affected the l/leg but it has not lasted as long as this. I have been in pain for approx 5 months walking stooped over and having to use a walking stick. I can only walk short distances. The pain in my leg is like a leg full of barb wire which makes weight bearing difficult. I have already had a few falls from not being able to weightbear.
