I am new to site and I think I know what I need to do but I am dragging my feet. You see I have had 3 lower back surgeries since 2008. 1st one for a ruptured disc. 2nd spinal fusion through front. Oh boy was that a fun one....NOT! 3rd one for bone and ligament removal around spine at 4th and 5th vertebrae. Now, a few months ago I sneezed really hard of all things and something in upper back around shoulder blades area it felt like my spine popped and at the moment of sneeze like the spine protruded out. I have done it a couple times since but now have pain all the time and now at night sleeping on either side my hands go numb. I had an xray that stated I had moderate wear and tear. What does that mean? I am also noticing that my little finger and ring finger are tingly.My last Dr. which is a Neurosurgeon is getting pretty old and really hard to communicate with. What do I do? I have Stenosis and I am wondering if it is working its way up my back?
