burning pain

For the second time this month I have had what feels like burning shards of glass exploding from the middle of my upper back out to the sides. The second time this happened I also lost control of my bladder. The burning goes within a few minutes and I regain control of my bladder. Has this happened to anyone else. I have had anterior corpectomies and fusion of C4, C5, and C6 because of spinal stenosis and I have 7 herniated discs in both the thoracic and lumbar spine. Can anyone relate to this? I would love to hear from you if this has happened to you or something like it.


  • Hi Shaft44, I experience that pain all day everyday and it is relentless. I too am having issues with bladder control but thankfully those unfortunate episodes aren't constant, as they come and go. I wish I had an answer to your issues because it would mean I had the answers to mine, but I sincerely hope and pray that you have a better doctor than my first one and you get some relief and answers quickly.
