help i have fallen

I had L4-S1 fused with titanium screws and rods in july of 2008. I have been mostly without chronic pain for the past year but after a fall a month ago the pain has been intense and it goes down my right leg. My toes and both feet are now mostly numb and i keep losing my balance and falling to the right. Could i have pinched a nerve? I also have ddd and L3-L4 spinal stenosis plus a microdisectomy at C6-C7 with partial fusion and i am a heavy smoker. Please some advice. Thanks


  • You need to go and see your spinal doctor ASAP and ask for an MRI scan because without that your not gong to know what has caused your new symptoms since your fall...
    Facet joint Arthritis L3,L4,L5,DDD.
  • New symptoms, new numbness and falling means that you need to be seen by a doctor for evaluation and testing.
