What would cause my legs to collapse after lifting something heavy?

What would cause my legs to collapse after lifting something heavy? Topic: Spondylolisthesis symptoms and causes
June 26, 2019 / By Ferdy
Question: I lifted my son out of the car when he was asleep. He weighs about 15 kgs. Upon walking into the house after a few steps with him, i felt a weakness in both legs which got stronger and stronger, until I felt they were going to collapse - so i sat down in my front yard. It went away almost straight away, and I did not have any other symptoms, other than the feeling in my legs. I remember that I have had this happen before, although not as bad - not the point of having to sit down immediately. I remember when I was little it would happen sometimes when i bent down to pick up the cat. My GP said it may be spondylolisthesis, and I and going to have a CT. But upon reading up on spondylolisthesis, I don't really have the pain associated with this. Anyone have any ideas? I am otherwise well. Thanks. No my legs are not weak otherwise. I could easily exercise with no problem and no pain. Could it be hypoglycemia?

i'm not a doctor but this doesn't sound good. just get you checked it could also be MS. However just don't panic it could also be nothing to worry about maybe you just were too exhausted

Have you spoken to your doctor about perhaps you taking a unisom at night to knock you out so you can get some sleep? There are sleep aids that are approved for use during pregnancy and it may be enough to keep you asleep even if your legs don't agree. During the day you will just have to deal with it probably, but you are so close, your baby will be here in 2 months... you just gotta hang on a bit longer.

i'm purely 9 weeks and characteristic them. i fairly dont think of there's a therapy or therapy according to se you're able to do whilst pregnant -- different than baths, muscle rubs, etc (the huge-unfold stuff that doesnt paintings haha). one element I do is take Tylenol PM -- it a minimum of facilitates me sleep on the grounds that they're frequently the worst whilst in mattress altho i'm getting them whilst sitting in a chair watching television too.

Hi guy. 13 is the generally agreed-upon threshold to begin intensive weight training. You might find useful the following clinical evidence in support of techniques to help males gain height, bone density and muscle hypertrophy so you can get an early start on growing as big as you possibly can. In the 2005 study linked below, 143 boys were given 1g of calcium carbonate supplement daily for 13 months. They outgrew their peers, on average, by 0.7 cm, and also gained 1.3% more lean body mass and 1.5% more lumbar spine bone area, which means reinforced bodies and more rugged spines. It's a very important supplement for growing boys to take, even if they're getting enough calcium according to RDA. If you started taking 1g of calcium carbonate daily right now and continued until you stopped growing around age 21, it's conceivable that you could grow an additional 5.6 cm or almost 2.5 inches. Like it or not, heightism is real, especially when it comes to jobs, social networking and dating, and people favor tall men. So it pays for males to grow as tall as they can. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heightism This eHow article suggests drinking 3 glasses of milk daily, but not all at once, and getting to sleep before 12 midnight and sleeping for at least 8 hours per night: http://www.ehow.com/how_4545098_grow-taller.html Consider the following clinical evidence to reach your maximum potential. MAXIMIZING HEIGHT AND BONE DENSITY 1) Take a daily multivitamin with micronutrients. See below for recommended micronutrients to improve height. 2) Take 1000mg (1g) of calcium carbonate supplement daily. 3) Take 3g of GABA (an inexpensive amino acid supplement) at least once daily to quadruple baseline growth hormone levels. 4) Engage in regular low-risk vibrational physical activity, such as plyometric training, volleyball, basketball, short-to-medium range jogging. 5) Practice meditation for 20-30 minutes regularly around dusk in order to reduce stress and improve hormonal profile for growth (cortisol can inhibit growth). PubMed primary clinical journal articles: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18091016 - 3g GABA quadruples growth hormone levels. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15755856 - We conclude that calcium carbonate supplementation of adolescent boys increased skeletal growth, resulting in greater stature and bone mineral acquisition. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16426962 - The micronutrient-fortified beverage was beneficial in promoting growth and decreasing duration of common illnesses among middle-class residential schoolchildren who had adequate energy and protein intakes. MAXIMIZING MUSCLE HYPERTROPHY 1) Take 3g of GABA at least once per day. (already linked above) - 3g GABA QUADRUPLES growth hormone levels! 2) Post-Training Meditation - http://www.ergo-log.com/meditationhormones.html 3) Have lean protein for breakfast: eggs, steak, yogurt and/or a protein shake 4) Stock low-fat, low-carb, protein rich foods and snacks such as yogurt, milk, hard-boiled eggs, lean marinated chicken breasts and unprocessed, unsalted nuts - make your own lean & clean trail mix with almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, dried fruits and yogurt or dark chocolate. Don't let your baseline blood sugar trough while you're recovering from workouts; keep feeding the furnace with protein at least once every two hours. 5) Avoid drinking any form of cola, at all. It inhibits protein synthesis, which means you won't grow much muscle while drinking it. http://www.ergo-log.com/milkcola.html Drink milk and fresh-brewed green tea instead of colas, soft drinks or alcohol. "Improved endurance capacity following chocolate milk consumption compared with 2 commercially available sport drinks." 6) Use a twice-daily combinatorial protein and ALA supplement offset from workout times (i.e., morning and night) but drink creatine solution during resistance training 7) Take quercetin to reduce post-workout inflammation and boost mitochondrial biogenesis: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quercetin 8) Learn the basics of training if you haven't already—http://exercise.about.com/cs/exerciseworkouts/a/weight101.htm—and learn how high-quality rest is at least as important as exercise for anabolism 9) Use clinically proven, evidence-based weightlifting techniques including muscle confusion, eccentric loading and optimal intensity for maximum ROI. Concentrate especially on "the big three": squats, deadlifts and bench press, for maximum returns for effort. 10) Keep up-to-date about muscle and fitness by bookmarking the best, most objective online sources (PUBMED, etc.) and mix in alternatives such as hemp protein, vibrational and TENS/EMS techniques ( http://www.medword.com/MedwordStore/PCP/EMS_truth.html ) from time to time to see whether you get good results
