There are many different conditions that can cause strange symptoms in your legs other than cord compression. Metabolic, infectious, degenerative and autoimmune disorders can all cause these symptoms. WIthout long tract signs on examination, the source of “weird” leg symptoms should be looked into by a neurologist.

The substances you are taking will not affect the disc, spine or cord. Wobenzym is an offshoot of chymopapain, a substance that was used to inject into the disk to dissolve the nucleus and extract it. Needless to say, this technique fell out of favor due to the occasional paralysis that occurred with use.

These enzymes are proteins that are broken down in the gut and absorbed as simple amino acids. This breakdown makes these enzymes useless when they are absorbed.
