Hi there... i am looking for information and or opinions. I have had lower back pain for about 10yrs, but becuase I have a super high pain threshold never went to a dr. until the pain in my L thigh became unberable during walking and excersice. I had an xray and it showed and I quote from the dr. "there is degeration of the L4/L5 much more advanced than I would expect in someone your age" all of 45yr old. I am now on Celebrex, Morphine and sched for MRI next wed. my symptoms, chronic pain in the lower back, through my L hip and down my L leg to my knee. Pain is excrusiating if i walk more than 10-15min and I have to lean forward when at my desk at work and at home sittingon the couch with my knees up to my chest to dimish the pain. The pain is always present but the meds take the edge off.
is there someone else with same symptoms? from some research it sounds like I have Spinal stenosis..?
thank you for reading..
