I've struggle with back problems since 2013 started with my lumbar had lazer surgery which was a failed surgery, my disc re bulged with in the year and the pain running down my leg and the numbness in my foot had gotten sever so sever I was kicked out of work when my whole left side went numb and I almost fell. I went to a ortho surgeon he did another mri gave me two epidurals that made it worse he told me there's nothing else he could do for me and walked out of the room at the same time I was having neck problems my neck swelled up so large and I couldn't move it and the spine would burn arms and hand would go numb I had a mri done on it 3 times over the three years all done at the same place and each time it showed slight bulge and a little degenerative disc disease my last one was at the end of 2015 after getting no where with doctors I decided to see a neurologist and was sent to a different hospital for a mri of the neck which showed cervical stenosis with 3 herniated disc and surgery won't help because of how narrow it is with barley any fluid on it so I'll be getting injections soon (scared) what concerns me is if the stenosis is progressive or if the place I've had the mri done has faulty equipment and I also wonder if anyone else around my age has gone through this. I'm relieved to finally get dianosed after years the struggle has been real now I finally know that the pain radiating down my body is mostly due to my neck it has been debilitating I lost a real good job because of it so if anyone is or has gone through this let me know or if has had injections in the neck or facet joints do they help?
