Cauda Equina Syndrome

Cauda Equina Syndrome is something that my physio told me to be watchful about when I was first diagnosed with herniated discs and sciatica in both legs from hip to toes.

I was really worried about it but it is relatively rare. I did not ever experience cauda equina syndrome but I was glad I knew the symptoms. It is however useful to equip yourself with knowledge about it so if you get any symptoms you take swift action.

I was horrified to read on a forum recently that a man had low back pain and was suffering loss of bladder control for over a week and had not yet been to see his doctor about it! If you do experience the symptoms listed please seek advice from a qualified healthcare professional quickly.

Very good useful information on causes, presentation, management, investigations, complications and prognosis of this condition at website patient.co.uk Cauda Equina Syndrome If you liked this post do consider joining our Facebook Page Sciatica Solutions.

Have Bed Will Travel!


Hi there!

Well I have been away on my holidays for a few weeks and I had a wonderful time :)

It was great to see new sights and experience new things and get out of the routine. I also met up with family I haven't seen in quite a while and had a lovely relaxing time and a much needed break.

The only thing that bothered me all the time I was away was the sleeping. The bed was beautiful, clean and fresh and lovely and to most people the bed would have been just fine. I think me and my back are just fussy.

However I have now got soooo used to my memory foam topper that any other bed seems not quite right. I had some problems getting comfy and found that my back muscles actually ached in the mornings which doesn't happen at home.

So I have resolved to try to track down a portable travel memory foam topper that I can use whenever I go away. Keeping my back happy keeps me happy!

When I track it down I will post it here for you as well. If you liked this post do consider joining our Facebook Page Sciatica Solutions.
