this is the 2nd time in 2 months I have had this happen. I had a face,neck, back injury end of Feb. 2 weeks later I got a wierd new pain in my head and then my upper back got really hot for several minutes. I felt light headed and nausous this time. Last time my upper legs hurt then a few hours later i could not walk and ended up in hosptial for 8 days. last night I had a sharp stabbing pain from my back going down my left leg to my knee. It is normally a pain from my foot to my head when I step. My eyes are getting worse every week. Sunday I could not read the clasified ads with my glasses. This has never happened. I have seen spine Dr. He states I need a nueorlogist. He stated my Oswestry Disability Index score is 64%, whish is high? do not know what that means. Also stated in his report there is abutment up against the cord without signal changes. There is also narrowing of the left neural foramen. There is a mild disk bulge at c4-5.
Any ideas????
