Glad I found you. Very informational and I have enjoyed reading the posts. So many of us with so many back issues.
I have five buldging disks; spinal stenosis; severe facet joint arthritis; slipped vertebra on s1; old s1 fracture; degenerative disk disease and a pinched nerve right side. I jst fininshed two epidurals. I can feel my legs which is cool. I have not felt my legs in a while I guess. I still have the pinched nerve pain however on rt. side but I feel a little better. Last epidural ws tuesday, this week. I do know that I have steadilly been getting much worse. My pain went from a 5 constant to an 8 or 9 which is not workable at all really. I have trouble doing any work at home inc. the laundry etc. Going to the store is very hard, and I cannot lift anything...I live alone but have a daughter in area. Trouble she is a busy gal and my two cats refuse to do housework or shopping! Darn cats....
I know I will enjoy this site as there is so much to read. I have had these problems for about 10 years and went thru a severe pinched nerve years ago and three epidurasl as well. I went out on disability because of my back. I will be the big 65 on March 29 and have no earthly idea how in the world that ever happened.!!! :? :? :?
take care, and have a great day!
