Typically, a person with spinal stenosis will complain of developing deep aches and intense pain in the legs or calves and lower back after walking. Pain comes on more quickly when walking uphill. This is usually very reproducible and immediately relieved by sitting down or leaning over. When the spine is bent forward, more space is available for the spinal cord, causing a reduction in symptoms.
Although symptoms may arise from a narrowing of the spinal canal, not all patients with narrowing develop symptoms. It remains unknown why some patients develop symptomatic stenosis and others do not. Read More

Some countries use the word “rheumatism” to describe “fibromyalgia syndrome”.
There has long been said to be an intimate link between “rheumatic” pain and the weather. However, there appears to be no firm evidence in favour or against. A 1995 questionnaire given to 557 people by A Naser and others at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s Pain Management Center concludes that “changes in barometric pressure are the main link between weather and pain. Low pressure is generally associated with cold, wet weather and an increase in pain. Clear, dry conditions signal high pressure and a decrease in pain”. Read More
