Arthritis of the spine 'shouldn't cause pain?' Is that guy serious? LeeAnn, you shoulda poked him in the back with an ice pick and asked him if that hurt. I had a gyno once tell me child birth 'isn't that bad'. A man of course....then there was my first rheumy that said the two bulging discs in my back shouldn't cause tingling in my legs.
I have to wear knee socks in the winter...soft ones with no texture to them or my legs 'crawl.' Then I wear another pair of socks over them. Needless to say, I have to buy shoes two sizes too big to wear in the cold weather to accomodate all the socks. Hope you find something that works for you!
