Hi again eveyone,
I was recently diagnosed with cervical spondylosis as well as a central disc protrusion in c4/5. The disc protrusion was noted in 2007 but I just found out about it and I am wondering if it may have ruptured which is why I feel like someone set me on fire? I also saw a chiropractor recently who said that I have 9 compressed discs in my c-spine, thoracic and lumbar ranging from .5mm to 5mm. Is this considered spinal stenosis? I am 29 and have had 3 mva's. I am going to assume that these are not normal signs of aging. I went to the county hospital yesterday and was given vicodin and lorazepam but the vicodin is not helping very much. I still feel like someone set my head, legs and arms on fire. Any advice/information on my condition? I am a little confused as far as if this is stenosis or spondylosis or if you can have both in different parts of your spine. Any help again would be much appreciated. So glad you guys are here!
