I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis with claudication, Degenerative lumbar kyphoscoliosis, lumbar spondylisthesis, osteoarthritis, nerve root impingements, ruptured disks, and . These were diagnosed with 2 CAT scans and a Myelogram CAT scan. Surprisingly to me, I never experienced much discomfort until 1 year ago.
I've seen 2 Neurosurgeons who both said NOT to do surgery. I'm currently seeing a pain management Dr. I've had 2 Caudal injections that greatly reduced the pain I had on sitting. I still get pain standing and walking. I have been to rehab exercise without a lot of success. I've had lidocaine patches without any success. Currently I'm taking Max dose of Tylenol and 2 Tramadol a day. They help some. I have also purchased a small portable stool to let me sit even if there's no chair around.
