  • First welcome to the forum and if you can be more specific, have you had surgery, are these new symptoms or anything else that might help people understand. I worked as a laborer, truck diver and heavy equipment operate for 22 yrs. I started having real pain in 2008 but was still working and didn't have surgery, am having ACDF C5-6 July 10, 2012. There are a lot of great people who will help anyone, please don't be afraid to open up here, the more you do the more help you will get. I was also a volunteer firefighter and emt and worked two jobs for 5 yrs so I'm wasn't much for asking for help. God Bless, Joe

  • My symptoms really come on suddenly, but would be manageable with OTC medication, until a couple of years ago. One day, the pain was so severe that I ended up in the ER. It took a long time for it to go away and then it resurfaced again two weeks later and never left until I had my surgery.

    Everyone is different. My story is only my own personal experience with foraminal and spinal stenosis. Some people never experience pain at all and some are in excruciating pain. Many things can bring on the pain: injury, sleeping the wrong way, stress, etc. It's hard to really know. What are you diagnosed with?
