Curves in lumbar spine can be associated with back pain due to its altered mechanics (which can increase degeneration ) and curve may worsen with age due to further degenerative changes as well as and/or loss of bone density. ...Read more

Surgery: Spinal stenosis is the condition where the canal which the nerves and spinal cord travels gets narrow. This can be congenital or progressive due to arthritis. Rare causes for stenosis are infection and tumor. To cure it you need surgery. But if you have stenosis due to arthritis it can be treated with medications, therapy and injections. If those don't work, surgery may be the best option. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Somewhat: There are a multitude of treatments for spinal stenosis which to some extent can "cure" the symptoms of spinal stenosis to variable degrees. For example, an epidural steroid injection can sometimes cure the symptoms of spinal stenosis for a long time, sometimes well over a year at a time. But with any treatment, the symptoms can return, even if surgery is done symptoms can return. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can be: ? Whether cervical scoliosis, arthritis & lumbar DDD are related to fibromyalgia, FM. One of the multiple co-factors seemingly co-causal of FM is global muscle atrophy & weakness, leading to widespread myalgia & tender points in spastic muscles repetitively stressed/injured by gravitational forces. Painful skeletal derangements can incite sedentariness with loss of muscle mass/tone. Gravity Rules. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

62 y/o female w/ spinal stenosis, scoleosis, herniated discs & arthritis, MRI done told spine was narrowing? Suggested surg w/ cage around spine?
Potentially: Spinal stenosis is a condition in which the canal that transmits the spinal nerves is narrowed, often by bone spurs and disc protrusions. Surgical options include removing the structures pushing on the nerves, known as a decpressiin; or doing a decompression and then fusing the bones together. When you mentioned a cage, that suggests your surgeon recommended a fusion. ...Read more
Nonsensical: The spinal cord ends at about l-2, and most common disc issues are present at l4-5, and l-5-s-1. In order for a disc to affect the spinal cord, we are talking about a problem in the lower thoracic spine, or a rather unusual high lumbar disc fragment, perhaps. Myelopathy means involvement of spinal cord, so are we really using the term incorrectly here? Ask your doc about this. ...Read more
