Judy, Did you have an MRI done on your spine? If so did the disc problem show? I had an MRI that shows no abnormality whatsoever. Also, my pain is not "shooting" or tingling and it doesn't radiate down my thigh and leg. The doctors that want to blame the spine have told me they simply don't know what else to do. Other doctors do not believe the spine is the basis of my problem. Was your doctor sure about your spinal problem??
