I've learned recently that my facet joints at L5 S1 are arthritic and diminishing. My disk is gone at that level, and I have scar tissue from a diskectomy thats invading my nerves and my spinal cord. But the pain from lack of proper facet joints is just horrible!
It's that horrible "bone on bone" feeling that gets me. That sharp pain when I happen to move in the wrong direction.
Just thought I'd reach out to my fellow facet joint disease sufferers.
Hang in there!
