Nerve impingement: can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging disc. It can cause muscle spasm and back pain. This condition must be professionally managed.

Have a 2 yr leg chronic pain  back pain to thigh 2012/11  had salpingo  2013/10  had btl.
just had MRI picked nothing.numbness upper left back?

MRI of what?: When you say you had an MRI...of what? The area of the salpingo or the back? If so, which part of the back (lumbar, thoracic, the whole thing). You say it shows nothing...you mean you have no bulging discs, no degenerative disease, no evidence of osteoarthritic changes? May I swap spines with YOU? How about imaging study of the NECK since you're talking about numbness in the UPPER back? ...Read more

This requires eval: Your symptoms and signs (white count of 14,800) are numerous and only an in-person evaluation/examination can adequately assess them. I might think of some form of infectious colitis with your mucus BM's and elevated WBC count; the numbness/tingling and pain could be something entirely different. I believe the best advice is go to ER (or your doc's office if you can get in today!) Good wishes:) ...Read more
