Thanks for the welcome. I am a 49 year old female. 2 years ago I was diagnosed with carpel tunnel, plantar facisitis, tennis elbow, lumbar stenosis, buldging discs, DDD and was told the numbness in my face and extremities was due to too much vitamin B-6. I just had a MRI that showed severe stenosis in my neck. I've been going to PT for 3 months now and it has helped tremendously with the pain management but not the muscle weakness in my legs and hands nor has it reduced the numbess. My PT told me that I have to give up horseback riding. Does anyone know if riding really does more damage?
I have an appt with a neurologist in 3 weeks to discuss what my options are. Surgery looks inevitable but I'm hoping I can put it off a little longer. It seems every year the technology and results get better so the longer I can wait the better, but not at the price of losing permanent function. I recently went to Disney World and had to use a wheel chair as standing in line is impossible for me now. It seems my activities are getting more and more limited. That's hard for an active person like myself!
