    MissParker, welcome to Spine Health!! For other forum members to join this discussion, it would help if we had more information. If you would answer these questions then we could head in the right direction.
    What doctors have you seen in the past, neurosurgeon, spine specialist, orthopedic?
    What kind of doctor are you currently seeing?
    What kind of diagnostic test have you had, MRI, CT scan, EMG, X-Ray?
    What medications are you currently taking?
    What is the doctors plan of treating you?
    I know these are a lot of questions but without this information we really don't have anything to go on.
    This forum is an encyclopedia of knowledge, experiences, support, personal advice and understanding.
    I'm sorry you are going through this, and yes, it's very painful and frustrating. But I do understand. I have a lot of the same things you have going on.
    Hang in there, hope to hear from you again.
