This is so discouraging, and my situation is grim. Got my CT scan results and my L3 is slipping off L4 vertebrae (retrolisthesis) and not lined up with the one below it. This is causing stenosis (narrowing of the verve space) and I have pain, tingling, numbness, cramping, spasms and weakness. I have a part time job and I can barely make it through my shift. I need the job to pay for my doctor visits, have no insurance, and can’t get disability because I have the job. I am loosing hope that anything will get better for me.
Left foramina stenosis of L3/L4 (retrolisthesis)
