    You are starting off the best way. Reading through some of the various forums to get some information and understand the flow and navigation of this site. I suggest you review the Forum Rules and then take a look at the FAQ. The FAQ can provide you sort of a roadmap of Spine-Health, plus provide you with some good pointers.

    One of the best things you can do here, is to provide us with more information about your situation
    • How long you have been having this problem?
    • What diagnostic tests have you had and what were their results?
    • What doctors have you seen (PCP, Neurologist, Neurosurgeon, etc?
    • Have you had surgery? If so, When, what area, etc
    • What treatments have you be doing? ie Physical Therapy, Spinal injections, etc
    • What medications are you currently taking
    • The more we know about you the easier it will be for other members to reply to some of your questions.
