Do painful spasms when resting after 'walking' in braces (with a walker - I'm improving!) mean my legs are 'waking up' or is it a bad thing? My legs actually cramp up & my foot pulls towards me when I rest. My back is screaming in pain, but my PT is trying to get me mobile. Is this a good thing? I've got disks "touching" my spinal cord & my CE bundle is displaced, as well as having arthritis & DJD. I'm getting ready to graduate myself to canes instead of the walker, but still find I need to sit or lay down after being up for about 15 minutes. Thanks for any input.
