I am a 48yo female that has been battling back pain since a serious snowmobile accident about 8 years ago.

C spine shaped like a C

Most recent MRI (2wks ago) stated: (condensed version)

Moderate diffuse disk bulge l2/3 with forminal narrowing and central canal narrowing

Moderate disk bulge l4/5 eccentric to the right with facet joint hypertrophy, foriminal narrowing and central canal narrowing

Three bone marrow hemegimoas

My pain is on the right side of my back, radiating down the right leg into the foot. Normal pain is 6-7 often spiking higher.

I have been in pain management for 1.5 hrs taking percocet, neuron tin, celexa, Xanax, and baclofen.

Dr referred me to neurosurgeon apt date 2/09/12

I am currently on drs leave from work until my apt due to accident that put me in ER two nights ago.

I will post details and ask for thoughts, advice on another thread.

Happy to finally be a member!
