I can't say I've ever heard of it, but the pins and needles are from the saddle area, which is used when riding a bike, so that would make sense.

What are they, you now have me intrigued )LOL

I tried the elliptical and found I could only do about 3 minutes the first week and was huffing and puffing.......and then 5 minutes and then 10 and so it takes time to build up endurance. I have not been on it since I had back surgery in May but I do walk around our Sr. Park and feel great. CURVES has all hydraulic machines and they are safer for me.

I tried the elliptical once and boy did my legs hurt so couldn't stay on it long enough to see if it would hurt my back or not. Good luck and keep us informed as to how you are doing.

Do any of you use an elliptical for exercise on a regular basis ? Does it every bother your back ? I was riding a regular bike and after about 3 days it was causing pain and numbness. I thought I would try the elliptical ????
