Hi everyone I’ve had some answers today.
Had a call from the consultant Quinn twice this week. I’m going to Newcastle for a second opinion as all my results say I have spinal stenosis. He said I have slightly severe spinal stenosis?
I have it in my lower lumber and top of my neck. An operation might have to be done but i won’t get an appointment till after carpel tunnel operation so about June to see the neurosurgeon. And my life just gets crappy and crappy
What are the symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis?
Pain in the back.
Burning pain going into the buttocks and down into the legs (sciatica)
Numbness, tingling, cramping, or weakness in the legs.
Loss of sensation in the feet.
A weakness in a foot that causes the foot to slap down when walking.
Yes I have all the above! I’ve have been composing since my stroke to no avail in Cumberland hospital. Until my GP found someone to see me.
Sorry to moan on I still have pneumonia so as you can imagine I’m upset to hear this other news.
Has anyone experienced this please? I’m not sure if it’s through the stroke yet though I have been told part of it could be.
Thank you for listening Loraine
