I didn't meant to imply that you were over 60, only that there are a LOT of people walking around with undiagnosed spinal problems.

Your vertebrae are laying on extra bone due to long-term stress (disk/osteophyte complexes) at multiple levels. It seems a little odd that your cord is slightly flattened by only "mild" canal stenosis. Could be that you start... (6 replies)
