I have a bulging disc pressing on a nerve in my back, so my left leg doesn't work right, and degenerative arthritis in both my ankles, so they hurt all the time. Looking for what type of exercise others do. (and NO yoga is not an option, getting up and down off the floor turned me off from it last year)

Water aerobics has been a great option for me with my back issues. Walking is also good. Your MD should be able to suggest things that are appropriate for your condition. If not, have him prescribe a few visits to a PT and they should be able to help.

I would strongly agree with the water aerobics; if you have that option available to you, definitely look into it. Also lower impact machines may be good. I have joint pain and while I like walking and running, sometimes it just isn't an option. Elliptical machines or AMT trainers are better for less joint impact.
