Spinal stenosis: Well how about it? Apply and see. Remember - if there is no evidence of disability you will be denied. Just having an MRI that shows stenosis and complaint of pain does not constitute a disability.

See your doctor: First, you need an evaluation to aee if there is any inpairment related to this diagnosis which is not often since most people can do sitting or sedentary jobs with spinal stenosis if in the lower back. You may need what is called a functional capacity evaluation.
