Right leg numbness. back spasams like if some 1 is stabbing me with hot knife straight into spine. carnt lye on stomach or side if i do it kills me. carnt stand for more than 2 mins in 1 spot without pain which gets worse the longer i stand. when i wake up im in agony like totally spasamed out. if i sit on floor with legs crossed lean slightly forward and relax my back feels like my spine is about to colapse. nad basically constant pain in back. could any of you guys put a name to my symptoms so i could look it up would be very greatfull thanks davesdisc


  • hi dave well alot of what your suffering i can relate to. it could be Spondylolisthesis good look
  • have stenosis :? .
    I have it with the herniation, and the leg pain is severe, spasms, you name it. Look up stenosis. I also have leg weakness.

  • sciatica.
  • Degenerative disc disease. Annular tear? I take Lyrica for that leg pain and numbness & radiculopathy. What meds are you taking? Charry
    DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN
  • Sciatica will cause most of those symptoms. If I remember correctly from your last post you didn't have DDD(degenarative Disc disease) or stenosis.
    You had a bulge that I thik was not inpinging into the canal.

    You caould ask your Dr to do a CT scan which will give a much more comprehensive diagnosis but it still needs to be read by a Dr who is a spine specalist.
    Bite the bullet and go see one.

    You can only feel better after when at least you know what the cause is.
    Blessings Sara O:)
