"I walk 50 metres with a stick (outdoors) and get low back pain and sharp pain going up the spine and have to stop and sit or stand for one minute approximately and then can walk a similar distance again. It takes me two to three minutes to walk 50 metres. I get frequent cramps in the right foot whilst walking."
