I wish the very best for you heather. Please keep us advised, I know the frustration that accompanies a back condition all to well. I have a 14 month old son that doesn't understand why daddy won't pick him up all the time, and a 16 year old daughter that gets frustrated when daddy can't do a mall trip.

I have read your post and you sure seem to know a lot. Be sure you understand the word's and term's used. Ask a lot of question's it's your body. I see the mri finding's, but have you had a cat-scan? Mri's show muscle and tissue while ct's show more of the bone. The more you know the better you'll feel about the whole process. Keep us posted. Steevo

Thanks steeve and the others. I only know alot because I research everything I can on my conditions. No one has been able to help me yet. I want to know how close I am to surgery. I want knowledge so I can be prepared for the often arrogant physicians that breez right in and out the door within about three minutes. I want my guns loaded, so to spead.
Have so much pain it's pathetic. I can no longer like I once did. And I detest that more than just about anyhting else.

My back feels like it's about to break into, my thighs get very weak and achy, the soles of my feet tingle. My hips ache and pop, I have severe muscle spasms constantantly, my neck hurts all the time now. I have pain in my left soulder blade, shaking in left hand, loss of strength in both hands, tingling in shoulder and hands..................................... ..........

The list goes on and on...
'
i also think someone should be treatind or at least keeping an eye on my heemangioma. I'll bet anything it is causing some of these things mentioned.

Sorry if I sound dopey, I am. Hurting to bad and had to take meds. Wish this was all over...................................... ..................

Check out this site, chiropractic4all.Com, click on benefit you then spinal nerve chart. If your symptoms are spine related, this may narrow the location. I'm no chiro, but all of the chart's i've found seem to be put out by them. Try spinal chart's too. Have the best holiday you can. Do not let the thing's you cannot do, interefere with what you can do. By john wooden. Steevo
