Default Re: Pain all over

Sometimes, as muscles atrophy, and especially if you're not heavy, the nerves get pressure on them from simply sitting or any other static position. Even though I gained about 15 pounds since my diagnosis, my glutes lost their muscles and I have numbness and pain that goes down my legs, especially on the left (which is the leg where it started.) The doctor said it was from the loss of bulk. I hurt most when I'm sitting.

Have you tried a variety of mattresses?
