Hi ive recentley had mri scan results back which showed that i have narrow nerve canals in my back which are pressing on my nerves causing my muscles to go into spasm. My doctor says there will be no cure for this but she is sending me to a rhematolgist cvonsultant surgeon who will refer me for steroid shots or a pain management clinic.In the mean time ive been perscribed baclofen and tramadol for the pain 30mg a day of baclofen and 400mg a day of tramadol but these dont even touch the sides and my appointment with the consultant wont be for another seven weeks as the uk nhs waiting list is miles long! (I also have a bulging leaking disc that is pinching my sciatic nerve also causing spasms) I cant seem to find anything on the internet about narrow nerve canals pressing on nerves and i was wandering if any of you guys had heard of it and if you could give me any advice?
