For me, when the s.s. kicks in, it's usually nerve pain that shoots up and down my leg to my feet. It's not "on the surface". Look up spinal stenosis symptoms online and you will get an array of descriptions. Additionally, many s.s. sufferers experience relief when they are in a hunched position (like using a cart @ the grocery store) or sitting/lying down. Good luck.
