Hi. Im new to this forum. My name is Brenda Zamarron and im age 20. Ive suffered with neck pain since middle school. It bothered me a great deal in school and i missed so much school due to my neck pain. I really don't know what started the pain. It just happened out of nowhere. The pain started getting overwhelming in high school that i decided to see a chiropractor. They told me i had kyphosis of my neck and mild scoliosis in my back which i've been told recently that i do not have. I was seeing the chiropractor for three years and they basically lied to me. I was betrayed. Just this last year is when i started experiencing all these other symptoms that came along with my neck pain. I have extreme pressure in the back of my head that i feel i cant hold my head up and i use my hand to support the weight, my vision has got worse, i have tingling and numbness in different parts of my body, i get weakness in my arms and legs, my legs shake a little when standing, i have stiffness in my joints, trouble swallowing food, my fingers and toes close in, and i also have bladder and bowel dysfunction. Multiple sclerosis has been ruled out by an MRI i had. Glad that's not the case. I've been to two rheumatologists already. One said that i don't have arthiritis and both diagnosed me with fibromyalgia which i don't think is the case. I really suspect that i might have spinal stenosis. Its really starting to take over my life. Im going through depression everyday and i hole myself up in my room due to my pain. I just recently seen a orthopedic surgeon to get his opinion and he was very shocked and suprised with my symptoms and how long ive been suffering, especially for my age. He has ordered an mri of my neck and im hoping that the insurance doesn't deny me like they have before. But bottom line is, if anyone has spinal stenois and you have any of my symptoms that i've described, is it possible i could have this? I really don't know what to think anymore. Any opinions or feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
