Is there a difference between osteophyte and osteophyte complex? Or is this just different people using different words to decribe the same thing?
Second question - Do any of you Thoracic pain suffers begin to have lumbar issues as the whole journey of chronic thoracic pain goes on and on and on? I have mentioned to my doc the numb toes and heel - and he did say this was most likely sciatic - fine, it doesn't happen 24/7 just during the day when i stand too long or walk too long (after @ 15-20 minutes). But now i have got a constant pain in my lower rt flank into the rt hip. I don't care when something is periodic - it is the NEVER STOPPING - maybe this too shall pass - but man, i don't even want to say anthing, hell they haven't figured out the thoracic yet! Just wanted to know if this a typical process for thoracic people.
