Yes depends on if you have a previous injury or somehow if there is nerve impingement. Especially if you have shooting pains from your lower back to legs. It could be positional meaning try to adjust your drivers seat that will allow you to reach the pedal but still puts you in a better position. If feasible take 10 min breaks per hr or every couple of hours on long halls to stretch and walk.
