Yes, I tried PT - did it for almost 6 months actually. I had to stop because my UC started flaring and getting out of the house while in a Uc flare is a bit of a challenge. I've even been on muscle relaxers and nerve pain pills - Skelaxin and Neurontin. You name it, I've tried it. :)
And yes, I was and still am having accupuncture for my leg weakness. I had to put a stop to it for a month or so because I have many vacations. I just got back from being gone for 9 days and I'm leaving again tomorrow. Accupuncture seemed to help my energy level in my legs. I don't feel as if I am walking thru sludge anymore - now it's more of a walking thru watery mud type feeling :)

Congrats on the DX!! I too just got a name to my pain! It feels great doesn't it? Other than us CRAZY cp'ers, who would be giddy over finding bulging disks (or in my case compression fractures)? Now that you know what the pain is from you should have some more productive treatment now. Good luck with the epidural shots! I hope you get some relief.
