numbness in feet
I'm working my way through the book, and it's brought quite a lot of relief. I stretch lie before I go to sleep, and I'm sleeping deeper and more soundly than ever before.I also do stretch lying again a few times soon after waking.

My problem is this, and it has been with me ever since I got a herniated disk in my lower back a year ago. I'm OK when I get up, but after I leave the house and start to walk to work , a 45 minute walk, within about 500 meters  my feet begin to get very numb and my front leg muscles begin to hurt. I can  relieve this by  stretching my legs like runners do two or three times. There is also the base of a statue I sit on for a few moments that is the perfect height to relieve the numbness. After stretching and sitting there for a few moments, the numbness often goes away completely, or at least subsides to tolerable levels.Once I am sitting down it goes away and generally doesn't come back to bother me during the day or when I am walking home at night.

I'm wondering if I am doing something wrong in stretch lying or in the position I am sleeping in?

Sounds to me like your psoas muscle may get tight at night and relax over the day. A tight psoas pulls the front of your L1-L5 vertebrae forward in a sway; a swayed architecture in turn can result in impingement of nerve roots, either because the discs or the bones are pressing into them. Try starting the morning out with some psoas stretches including "the ones that runners do" (lunge-like psoas stretch - this one is described in the book). Sitting allow the psoas to have a lot of slack, so it makes sense that sitting helps. You might seek out a massage therapist who can help release your psoas. Ultimately, walking well, leaving the heel down on the floor a long time, will sort out your psoas tension.

Thanks very much for helping me figure this out. I think stretching the right way may help a great deal, and I'll also start working on walking well.
