I'm curious - if you have problems in one part of your spine are you likely to have problems in another part of your spine?
As you can see by my signature, I've had surgery on my cervical spine and now I'm having sciatica that starts in my left buttock and extends down the back of my left leg to my knee. This seems to come and go, but I always have pain in my tailbone and sometimes it's very hard to sit.
My doc believes that my cervical issues stemmed from a car accident many years ago. If that's the case, doesn't it seem logical that the lower spine could have been affected as well?
It seems like I see this a lot on these forums where one part of someone's spine is injured, they get surgery, then here come problems from another part of the spine. Is it just my imagination, or are you likely to have problems throughout your entire spine if you suffer from an accident or another traumatizing event?
