@billandri Bill I'd like to direct you to a conversation taking place. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/spinal-stenosis-lumbar/?pg=4#comment-259270
Although the original post was addressing lumbar stenosis, I feel you will get a lot of good info reading the various responses.By tagging @jenniferhunter@lioness I hope for them to join in and add their experiences. My husband had 2 C Spine surgeries last year. He had herniated discs as well as stenosis.His spine is now fused from C3 – C7. Numbness due to nerve damage is still something he fights. The index finger is totally numb and twitches. Epidural did not work alone, he is now looking at RFA radio frequency ablation done at C5 level.
How long have you been experiencing problems?
