- CASE FILE
I have had severe low back, caused by nothing, for 20 years not. All attempts to fix it have only made it worse. I can't take it anymore.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
By all medical standards, everything that is "wrong" with my back is "mild" or "unremarkable". Mild and unremarkable shouldn't make it impossible to sleep or stand or walk or play with my kids. I have small focal central disc protrusion, bilateral neural foraminal stenosis, left facet arthrosis with synovial dehydration, C7, L3, L4 and L5 vertebral body hemangiomas, Small disc bulges at C6, C7 and C7-Tl mildly efface the thecal sac.
This pain has been getting worse over the last few years, sending sharp, aching pain down my leg and causing toes to go numb. I am sick of being told nothing can be done.
