The last time I did any real physical activity was in May of this year, before I had the first of my 2 back surgeries, within 3 weeks. I am experiencing terrible numbness and pain from the numbness in my foot and two toes. I was diagnosed with TMS about 20 years ago, at 19 years old, and I accepted the diagnosis, worked on it, and I felt so much better, with occasional flare ups. The pain I had right before the surgery was like nothing Ive ever had in my life, and I have given birth to 5 children! So although I am now again working on the TMS diagnosis for muscular back pain, I have been told that there is nerve damage, and not sure if its temporary or permanent, but I am really hardly able to get around, let alone exercise, which is depressing, and very bad for my weight, which I worked so hard to lose, and am now gaining back. So, that is my exercise experience as of late.
