A Poll please. Cervical, thoracic, lumber, or a combination?

I am curious to know where your back problems are. More specifically I am curious to know if there are many of you who have more than one affected area.

One Love,



  • Stephanie,
    I have pain in my lumbar area and radiculopathy. Of course if you look at my MRI's my lumbar spine is fine and I have 3 levels of bulging & stenosis in my cervical spine. No symptoms directly from that though! :)
  • I have cervical and lumbar, a combination I understand that is quite common.

  • When I left my neurosurgeon's office after my second spinal surgery he said"see you next time"-It seems it is common for people to have repeat spinal problems.Why? I quess it is different for everyone.I was in a car wreck 25 years ago that probably shifted all my vertebral disc's just a tad-or slightly weakened them.I wound up having repeat surgery on the same lumbar site 20 years after the first.Taking proper care of myself-{learning my limitations and relearning my strengths}has been as much of a challenge as the surgeries.
  • is where my problem are! I am scheduled for a 2 level 360 fusion L4-S1.
