    Thank you for your time in answering my question...I am sorry I was not trying to obtain medical advise just an opinion if someone had a similar problem that caused pain also.I will be speaking with my doctor when I see him but I will not be able to see him until Febuary 8 2013 and the best part is I scheduled the appointment on the 14th of this month he is that backed up.I have read up on stenosis but I am unable to find any answers in if the mild form would cause the same kind of pain?
