I remember you from posts on the back board. Was surgery for the stenosis ever recommended? The nerve compression in the spine is most likely causing the pain, tingling and numbness.

The peripheral nervous system is the part of the nervous system located outside the brain and spinal cord, so this includes the spinal nerves, and all sensory and motor neurons. If what is causing the nerve compression could be addressed, it might be more beneficial than treating for the pain.

Also there is a lot of new research about pain. i can't explain it in medical terms but when one continues to do the activity that causes pain, which aggravates a particular nerve (sciatic nerve in my case) the brain interprets that same signals even when the nerve is not being compressed. Also the nerve itself can become, it is best to avoid those activities that you know cause your symptoms...if that makes sense.

There is a book I just heard about that sounds interesting, but I haven't read it yet. You might be interested in taking a look -- Back in Control: A Surgeonís Roadmap Out of Chronic Pain by David Hanscom MD
