Update - Bummer Knees - 03-31-2008 12:40 PM
I went to my family doctor (Osteopath) on my back today and he did exactly what I thought he would and scheduled me for a MRI of my back. (Our local hospital has a new machine that is impressive according to the medical community.)
I told the doctor about the increase in weakness & pain down the right leg. Also told him about the burning across the back & down the leg and about the right side going totaly numb last week.
He did some reflex testing and said yep, it's your back. Going to see the doctor a couple days after the MRI and will let you know.

I'm glad to hear that this Dr. is getting an MRI done for you. Keep us posted as to what the report says. I hope your symptoms ease up for you soon.

When the doctor tested my knee reflexes today they were absent. That is when he said; the problem is your back.
I felt like saying, and what else is new?

Thank you everyone for your responses.
I have learned the need to pace myself in my daily activities.
The online college class I am enrolled in requires 2 1/2 hours of classroom observation which I am doing this morning. I will be observing a 2nd grade classroom which contains regular & special education students.
I hope I am up to the challenge.
