HI i have posted a few times but i am wondering if what i am experiencing is spinal stenosis or just symptoms of my other problems. I have a grade 4 collapse of the L5/S1, DDD in S1,L5,L4, osteo arthristis, spodylothesis grade 1 also in the L5.
I have been having severe nerve pain down both legs, it makes walking a real chore. I have a scooter to take care of walking long distances because i can't. my legs get weak and start to shake the longer i stand up. The burning goes down both legs. I also have a problem in the hip area, where the leg meets my body. When I put pressure on the leg something in the hip joint gets pinched and I almost fall down. I absolutly can't put pressure on that leg when it happens.
By the way i am 27 years old, I am currently awaiting a L5/S1 fusion with hardware.
Are these signs of spinal stenosis? If so, will the fusion fix it? I also am in PM till my surgery but nothing seems to be helping. I currently take Morphine 60 mgs 2 times a day, with 15 mg msir every 4 hours, also Lyrica 75 mgs 3 times daily. Are there better meds for my situation? If so what are they?
thank you.
