Hey, my name is Les.
My current problem is mostly with my lower back.
I have been diagnosed with (Mild) Scoliosis, Lumbar lordosis and Stenosis.
After an MRI they have discovered a hemangioma on my spine.
I have visited a regular clinical physician about it as well as a spine specialist who I am seeing
in combination for my previous diagnosis as well as injuries from a recent car accident.
The pain is not constant but any activities including standing walking or sitting in a car will cause it
to hurt quite a bit in little time, making it difficult to impossible to walk or exercise.
I am planning on seeing another spinal specialist for my previous injuries not including the accident soon
to get a more detailed diagnosis from the MRI.
I have had MRI on my lower spine as well as many X-rays on all of my spine from tail bone to neck.
As far as aiding it, I have been doing Chiropractic and physical therapy treatments along with medications.
My doctor currently has me on a mixture of cyclobenzaprine 10mg and Tramadol 37.5mg
My doctor has me continuing chiropractor help along with Physical therapy, though I had to stop the PT because of financial issues.
But within the next week, I will have a nerve study done to determine why my right leg has been going numb periodically after the
I have not had any surgeries as of yet for it.
So, in a nutshell, I have had most of the back problems before the accident, but the accident has aggravated it to the point of numbness in leg
along with some torn ligaments in my neck (Found in x-ray supposedly)
