[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="Navy"]Raya,

If no one has to this point, let me be one of the first to welcome you to the boards here. It is a wealth of information from alot of people who do care tons more than any doctors ever will. None of us are docs by an means but draw on a lot of personal experiance. Unfourtunately it is a lot of bad experiance as most of the people who have healed no longer have a need for the board and have moved on.

Sounds like you need an MRI for sure. It will definately show what you have going on in the disks and soft tissue that a CT or Xray will not show very will. Also you may want to take the time to do a google search for something called a dermatone chart. It shows where those disks in your cervical, thorasic and lumbar spine have a tendancy to radiate pain to. I was dumbfounded by how far some of those actually go. It may tend to shed some light one some of the pains that you are feeling.

Be vigilaint and [U]persistant [/U]with the doctors. Sometimes it's what it takes for them to take you seriously without brushing you aside. Unfourtunately the doctor's standard of care for most people experiancing back pains without, a diagnosis of herniated disk, stenosis etc., is to call it muscle spasms, medicate with some light narcotics, muscle relaxers and a steriod dose pack.

I wish you the best of luck and pray that your pains lessen in intensity. We are all here if you need us.
