Spinal stenosis : You have arthritis in the mid back (thoracic level 9/10). The joints that connect one level with the next are overgrown and compressing the spinal cord and pinching the nerves as they exit the canal. It is important to see a neurosurgeon for an examination to ensure that there is no neurological problems from this arthritis and to develop a treatment plan for pain relief.
