Back pain

03/18/2008

Question:

I have experienced severe back pain which travels down both legs and in my buttocks. It is worse when I try to stand up after sitting down. I find it very hard to stand up and my legs do not seem to want to move. I have very bad pain in my buttocks and down both of my legs when trying to walk. Sometimes my legs do not want to move when I try to walk. The pain goes away when I lie down.
