Just diagnosed with moderate/severe stenosis of the L4 spine. Despite the diagnosis of severe my pain is not that bad and managed with over the counter meds. I was stunned to hear it was that bad, compared to my pain level. I am kinda depressed to hear this diagnosis but feel fortunate not to be in so much pain. I guess I am wondering if anyone else has any similar conditions and do you have any idea why my pain is not worse? I am hoping I am lucky and it won't but part of me thinks I am just getting that much closer to it being severe and debilitating. Is it possible I can hold on like this?
