  • Hi,
    Good morning to all,
    As I am new on this site, I wish to thank you for accepting me and really find this site very interesting. I have already posted my first comments about my health yesterday I know that I will have a response soon.
    Once again thanks to all of you for the great work you done.

  • Hi,
    As I am new on this post I think I made a mistake while posting yesterday. But anyway here some details about me and hope to have comments from you soon. Well I am a man of 49yrs of age and is suffering from my neck and my back since 7yrs. I usually go to hospital to have X ray but they always told me that I have nothing serious and just put me on traction for 3 - 4 days max and get discharge with some paracetamol. As I told you this situation last since 7yrs and it's just a month ago that I have been with a private trauma ortho who told me to do an MRI for both cervical and Lumbar. The results for my lumbar indicate that I have a bilateral spondolysis with grade 1 spondylosisthesis at L5/S1 with facetal arthropathy.For my cervical results its indicate that I have loss of cervical lordosiswith mild kyphotic deformity from C3 to C7.
    There is also degenerative disc deseases with disc osteophytic complexes at C3-C4,C4-C5 and C5-C6
    Exit foraminal narrowing by uncal osteophyte abutting the C4 and both C5and C6 nerve roots.Concernning medication I am on LYRICA 75mg twice daily and Tramal 50mg twice daily. I also have a lumbar brace and a soft cervical collar that I wear everyday. Since I have gor the results my ortho told me to see another specialist to have a 2nd advice which will be next week. But in the meantime I always have chronic from both neck and low back and its really tough for to go to work as walking also is painful for me as I gor away for 150mts. So, as I have seen this site, I really want to share this with you.

    Many thanks to all of you
