Not bulging discs: But spondylitic changes affecting structure of vertebral column could produce narrowing of foramena or lateral recess compression which could cause radicular symptoms.

First get a handle on the stress/anxiety cascade, and then develop approaches to control you limbs. Cognitive-behavioural approaches may help, and even could try acupuncture. Some anti-anxiety meds could benefit. ...Read more
