Overwhelmed spine

I'm hoping this is a good place to post this. I am post scoliosis surgery over 20 years and post spondylolisthesis grade 2.5 surgery six years. I had two myelograms and I have a CSF leak and a constant dripping feeling in my lower lumbar area. When I walk it feels like I'm stepping on glass. I'm uninsured , trying to get coverage but wanted to know if anyone else has these feelings? Thank you

  • If you have a cerebral spinal fluid leak, that would be what is causing the sensations you are describing. What are the doctors recommending be done about it?
  • The drs do not want to do anything since I am a complex case. In the meantime, I lost quality of life and of course uninsured at this time. Hoping things will get better . I was told unless I get a spinal headache, to leave it alone. That doesn't help the new conditions and how it affects my life.
