I am a obese 55 old woman handicapped with spinal stenosis. Latly I am having sharp and very painful pain in my thighs and it hurts when I am on my feet and especially when I wear shoes with heels what would you suggest to aleviate the pain?

Lose weight & heels: Both actions should help symptoms depending on what reason you have for being handicapped. Heels force your back into extension which further narrows your spinal canal aggravating the stenosis present . Treatment ranges from medication, use of a cane, physical therapy and epidural steroid injections. If you need surgery, obesity increases the risks/ complications of surgery. ...Read more
