Hi! I have responded to a couple of posts in the past, at first under a different name, but thought I should introduce myself. I had a C3-C7 laminoplasty in October 2009 due to severe cervical spinal stenosis that was beginning to affect bowel/bladder function. Had a very skilled neurosurgeon who freed the spinal cord but I am left with hyper reflexia and chronic upper back pain. In 2012, I developed new symptoms in my left arm (tingling, numbness, loss of some triceps strength) which was found to be a result of severe foraminal stenosis bilaterally at 2-3 levels in my cervical spine. I see a PM doctor and am currently on a good medicine regime so have put off surgery to correct the stenosis until/if I experience any more weakness in that arm. This winter, I fell on ice in a parking lot, jarred my poor neck (knocked a screw loose literally) and am now having low back pain. It is intermittent, brief, but intense. It occurs if I trip, bump into a door frame, stub my toe, or lean backwards. I spoke to my sister (who is a physiatrist, which is remarkable helpful) and she thinks it may be SI joint pain. I have searched the internet to find someone else who has this particular pain with no luck. So here I am...I hope I can be of help to some with my own surgical/pain experiences and would also love to find someone else who has this weird back pain thing going on. I've been reading here daily for over a year, and decided it was time to join in.
