I had a MRI a few months ago & my pcp had his nurse call me & tell me that it showed narrowing of the spine. I asked if that was narrowing of the space between the vertebras due to DDD, or of the spine itself. She said it was all in the same family & that was all the dr. told her to tell me. I saw a physician's assistant last week & asked if that narrowing meant spinal stenosis, & she said yes, & told me that my record also showed 2 protruding discs. Now today I saw a reumy for the first time & he said that I don't have a diagnosis of spinal stenosis & that I certainly have back issues with osteoarthritis etc., but that fibro is the worst of my problems. Anyway, I'm not sure whether I have spinal stenosis or not!
