  • Welcome to SpineHealth. You sure have alot of issues. What type of doctors have you been seeing? I'm assuming you have had some MRIs or CTs to diagnose all that. Which levels are affected? And what has your doctor been doing to treat you?

    THe more info you can share the better chance that someone will have some good suggestions or similar experiences.

    Again welcome. I'm sure you will find lots of info here.
  • Welcome to Spine-Health. You'll find a wealth of information here in the form of articles and videos and the members of the forums are very helpful and supportive.

    The thing that stuck out to me is that you mention bowel and bladder problems. If this is due to your spine, it's considered emergent and you need to get to the ER immediately. Forget everything else for now, once bladder and bowel symptoms begin, you need to see a doctor immediately, no waiting.

    So please get yourself to the ER now.

  • I agree with Cath, if you are starting to have bowel and bladder problems due to your spine problems, you need to contact your surgeon immediately. If you are not under the care of a surgeon at this time, then a trip to the ER would be warranted.

    I had spondylolisthesis with similiar symptoms to your's. Sorry you are having to go through this. Please keep us posted.

    Best wishes,

  • When does the actual neck and back pain usually occur? I'm almost a month pregnant and I woke up this morning experiencing the worst back of my neck and back pain!
