Can it cause my feet to feel cold all the time.
Is surgery the best option for this?
My L-1 thru L-6 are in pretty bad shape
do you mean you have Spinal stenosis? Spinal stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal or neural foramen that results in pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots. Symptoms may include pain, numbness, or weakness in the arms or legs.Symptoms are typically gradual in onset and improve with bending forwards. Severe symptoms may include loss of bladder control, loss of bowel control, or sexual dysfunction.
Treatment options are either surgical or non-surgical. Overall evidence is inconclusive whether non-surgical or surgical treatment is the better for lumbar spinal stenosis. you should consult a surgeon about your situation.
I have had this dx up and down my spine. I currently have 3 spurs on 5,6,7. This pain is on the bottom part of rib cage
Hello, what do you mean by dx? It is usually divided into cervical vertebrae, thoracic vertebrae, and lumbar vertebrae. Which segment of the segment do you have problems with? MRI can comprehensively observe whether the intervertebral disc has lesions, understand the degree and location of the nucleus pulposus and identify other space-occupying lesions in the spinal canal, and understand the compression state of the spinal cord, cauda equina and nerve roots. Non-surgical treatment includes: bed rest, continuous traction, physical therapy, massage, massage, oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or hormone epidural injection, pain point closure. Non-surgical treatment is ineffective, symptoms continue to worsen, and pain. If there is a problem with bowel movements and urination, surgery is needed when it affects daily life and work.
