Hi, My name is Judith Flowers an I'm 18 years old. I have been looking for some kind of why out of this hell. I just been diagnosis with Spinal Stenosis. I have been having pains for a year without knowing why. Dec 26, I woke up one morning ate breakfast wash some dishes until I start feeling some minor pain in my lower back.I remember telling myself "It's happening again". I laid down an took a nap woke up to sever pain in my lower back. I Scream and cried all night till I was taking to the E.R. At this time I was only 17 and couldn't understand why. They gave me drugs an said its muscle spams an said go home and set a appointment with your doctor. That night I was in the E.R again even more pain because I was so sleepy. I remember on my way to the E.R it hurt so bad to sit down So when I got there i walk but with a limb. I got check out an I was dehydrated,low iron and sick. Three days an I wanted to die. I was put on bed rest and ben gay,pain killers an etc was my best friend. I finally seem my doctor and he tells me everything that I don't have. Within that year he diagnosis me with spams,lumbar dics diseases,restless leg syndrome an the list goes on. I had nerve check,MRI,Phyical therapy for 3 months, epidural steroid shots,Ton of Medication. So now I'm just wondering what to do now. The pain has less an I was able to go back to school. It's a constant pain everyday. It's hard to walk now and way better to sit now to less the pain from walking. I had to quit band,ROTC and myself. I hoped it was a one day nightmare thing but it turn into a year. At first it was only pain in my right leg not it's both and my side. HELP ME I'm a senior and want to go college an I feel this spinal stenosis will kill me alive.
