Spinal Stenosis Cause Blue Feet
Yes: Yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: The symptoms of spinal stenosis can sometimes mimic those of vascular disease (clogging of blood vessels). I would see your doctor and get this checked out right away.

Could spinal stenosis or scar tissue be a cause for post L5 s-1 fusion patient to have numbness and tingling in feet then to buttocks and groin.?
Yes: Spinal stenosis can lead to these symptoms and postoperative spinal changes can as well whether related to "scar tissue" or not. This causes symptoms from buttocks down to feet. If symptoms are going up leg from feet it may be a neuropathy or related to nerve changes in leg rather than in spine. You can have this evaluated and an emg/ncv or nerve test may help to distinguish source. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can they determine if my foot drop is being caused by my Ms or Spinal Stenosis? I am having an EMG done in Sept. will this help tell which one?
Quite simple: If you have spinal stenosis, your L-5 nerve root may well be compressed, but alternatively, you could even possess a peroneal nerve problem. An EMG can clarify totally, and if negative, the foot drop would be more likely due to spinal cord involvement in MS. If the latter, you should be treated for a relapse. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Lose weight & heels: Both actions should help symptoms depending on what reason you have for being handicapped. Heels force your back into extension which further narrows your spinal canal aggravating the stenosis present . Treatment ranges from medication, use of a cane, physical therapy and epidural steroid injections. If you need surgery, obesity increases the risks/ complications of surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have spinal stenosis with sciatic pain from foot to thigh. Now, I am having severe pain up to groin. I have been usingfentanyl patch and oxycodone with no relief. What should I do ?
See, below: If you are using oxycodone regularly (daily) than you are going into withdrawal despite a more consistent level of fentanyl provided by the patch. That withdrawal at the end of the oxycodone dosing interval is exacerbating your pain. Another trick that is not well appreciated is the use of ultra low dose Naltrexone (0.25 mgs 1-2x daily) also the other drugs per answers given by the other docs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am being treated for spinal stenosis but today my right arm, hand, leg and foot are having continuous pins and needle feeling. ?
Many possible causes: You could have spinal stenosis in both the neck & back which occurs in 20% of patients with stenosis in one region. If it is in the neck, the degenerative changes that create the stenosis may also be affecting one of the vertebral arteries leading to stroke like symptoms or you may be having a mini stroke or tia. The other possibility is that it may be a symptom of a demylinating disease like ms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ask a health question...Hi, I have spinal stenosis and drop foot in my left ankle and foot. My left foot is often swollen, a blister is on this leg.?
I have lumbar spinal stenosis and have had four back surgeries. I also have nerve damage in my legs and feet.I feel extreme burning and tingling. Now they want to puta spinal cord stimulator (scs) in. Is it a good idea?
Medically Sound: One cannot generalize for every patient and their own particular situation. In general, if a patient has been adequately decompressed, as you have been with 4 surgeries, and still has residual or continuing neuropathic pain they would be considered an excellent candidate for SCS at first assessment. Further spinal surgeries have not been seen to help and may in fact worsen your situation. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Mri-t12-l1 l4-l5 l5-s1 disk protrusion no nerve impingement or spinal stenosis. Left low back buttock leg pain ×3 wks. Foot cold tingling. Worse when sitting standing walking. 10 days steriod no help?
Delaying in this: Circumstance isn't advisable. Your symptoms suggest impingement, either through direct nerve compression or swelling around the nerve. In any event, a discussion with your neurologist/neurosurgeon about an epidural steroid (or transforaminal steroid) injection should happen sooner, rather than later. Although a cold, numb foot may be related to other (vascular) problems, nerve problems are primary. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
