Chronic Pain

I often crumble to the floor in pain from my back shifting letting the bones pinch against the nerves. My MRI's show severe stenosis but I'm having a hard time explaining to the Dr how I can go from okay manageable pain to excruciatingly debilitating pain in one slight move. How do I get the Dr to understand. Another Dr said "classic DDD. Can't help you." Sometimes I think that I should go to the ER when it happens in hopes that they do an MRI right away and it shows the pinching......any thoughts?

  • Going to the ER is generally not going to result in your getting an MRI. That's not why they are there........they are there for acute, medical emergencies, not the evaluation and treatment of a chronic spine condition.
    If you have been diagnosed with DDD, perhaps reading this might be of some help......

  • As your MRI shows severe stenosis this gives more and uninterrupted pain to your back, so before consulting your physician you should consult physiotherapist and get done some exercise which will reduce the pain along with take some medication which reduce the pain.
