No, the true diagnosis of spinal stenosis leads to extreme difficulty and lead legs with walking. Spinal stenosis seems to be the new 'flavour of the month' diagnosis which you can read all about on You could have acute disc prolapse but far more likely that you have facet joint arthropathy since this is way more common. FJA is much more treatable too because the facet joint has an exceptionally good blood supply. Either way, you need to do the spinal appeasing exercises. You can see this under back pain exercises in the left-hand side navigation bar of the afore-mentioned website.
