Hi All, Was wondering about people’s experience with spinal stenosis. I’ve recovered from TMS mid and lower back pain several times throughout my life. On January 22 of this year I slipped on the ice and landed on my butt. This was at work loading a van. Though I had moderate low back and SI joint pain, I had no thoracic pain and worked a 12 hr day ok. Those symptoms persisted for about 2 weeks and then got better. However workplace made me go see a doc and have X-rays and ultimately MRIs. Of course it showed a mild spondylolisthesis at L4-5 and in my mind I thought “ oh no maybe this is serious” and then I began to have serious mid back pain, exactly same area I had years ago which went away with TMS thinking. Ortho also told me I had mild spinal stenosis at the L4-5 level. Then my PT told me to go get the actual MRI report, which I read and which said “advanced central canal stenosis” and I freaked out. The thing is it reported lateral narrowing on the right side, but I have tingling in my left foot ( now that doesn’t make sense). In spite of this I’ve somehow gotten thru work and tried to keep jogging some (prior to fall was running 25 miles/week and had no pain or tingling anywhere ). Ortho said ok to jog but every time I do it makes the tingling worse. Mid back tightens up afterwards as well somewhat. My question is: is this TMS or is it that the stenosis is a true structural issue?
