The doctor at the spine centre is saying I’m a surgical candidate. It seems that I have severe arthritis in my spine (Degenrative Disc Disease). I refuse to have surgery, so I am looking into options. If I can get the pain and uncomfortableness down to something that I can live with then I’ll be happy. This does not explain the numb/tingling all over my body. When I see the new doctor that’s taking over at the centre I will ask him about that. They are hanging onto my MRI until I see the new doctor (which will be in a few weeks).
