I had to have my in-laws take my daughter this whole weekend as the weakness is just SO overwhelming. I esp feel it when I'm not walking if that makes sense. Could this be a nerve issue? Like a nerve in my back is causing body weakness like this? I don't have pain in my back but my GP said it can be in my lower back, to me that doesn't make sense . Any suggestions ideas? I'm really freaked out and scared I'm only 28 this can't be normal
You can have pressure on a nerve on your back that doesn't cause pain but does cause weakness. While you're waiting to see the neurologist, doing some stretching and back strengthening exercises might help.
