In reading some of the notes the doctor wrote after my visit earlier this week, I noticed that he mentioned Lumbar Facet Syndrome. I looked on line and sort of understand what it means but I would like to hear about others who have experienced this problem. I know that it is very painful and might be one of the causes of my mobility issues. If I understand it correctly, it also could be contributing to the sudden appearance of the side curve in my spine that had manifested over the last two years since the last time I had an xray of my lower back done. Thanks everyone.
