I am curious to see if anyone else experiences stenosis like myself. I had a compression wedge fracture of t12 and a fracture of t11 when I was 15 (1993) as a result a 6 level fusion of t9-l2.. for the past 9 years I get irritation along my spinal column causing random numb spots from the belly down.. They are in shapes identical to a nerve chart.. The could be on my stomach, thigh, buttock, ankle, etc.. My most recent episode was 2 weeks ago and was accompanied by stabbing shooting pains around the numb spot. This was probably the worst one. Most times I take anti inflammatories and the spots disappear in a few days. This time around, Solu Medrol seemed to do the trick.. I know they saw osteophytes 4 years ago so my Dr ordered another MRI which I will have on Thursday.
