Ruptured disc and two back surgeries

October 26, 2010 at 4:04 pm

I had the ruptured disc for months- tried every non surgical treatment I could find, but when the right foot dropped to the point I could not walk, I had surgery— twice. The back is much better, but the tingling and numbness continued to progress up my legs– then to my hands.

Over the last 20 years I have wondered if it was the back injury??
I also had the hepatitis series of inoculations around that time.
And a severe bout of dysentery that required a large dose of antibiotics
Stress for sure, but who does not have stress?
