I have bone spurs on my spine, moderate scoliosis, thoracic spine, kyphosis, osteoporis and osteoarthritis. I have continued back pain , pain in my hip?

Scoliosis back pain: There are many causes for back and hip pain, sometimes not as obvious as the curve in your spine on x-ray.

Diagnose in 2014 with arthritis in neck/back and lumbar spondylosis.Having swelling in lower back/ ankle/knee /muscle spasms/shooting pain down leg?

I would see a back: specialist, such as spine orthopedic or neurosurgeon, for sciatica and spinal stenosis in the lumbar spine. You will need MRI and/or CT myelograms. If left untreated or undiagnosed, spinal stenosis will debilitate you and push towards non-elective surgery which is never a good thing. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
