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

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

Numbness in toes, knee joint pain, and lower back pain along with migraines. Any suggestions?

Numbness in toes, knee joint pain, and lower back pain along with migraines. Any suggestions?

Likely unrelated: I think the symptoms in the leg and the head are separate even though they may be occurring simultaneously. The leg symptoms may be related to a disc compression some of the nerves that go down the leg. This may be more prominent in certain positions. Leg symptoms also may be due to referred pain from muscle or a disc. Also, not all headaches are migraines so it is important to have them evaluated. ...Read more

Can Be both: However if the facet block gave you 70-100% pain relief, then more likely to be your fact joint. If less than 50% relief, then consider the SI joint as a definite source of your pain. Also if not ruled out already, I often find things like spinal stenosis or herniated discs also have this same pattern of pain. ...Read more
