My mother had spinal stenosis surgery 7 years ago. In the last 4 months I have watched my 72 year old mother stagger, stumble, and fall down. She says her symptoms are numbness and tingling that started in toes and now have worked it's way to her hips. Her lower back is in constant pain. Her balance is horrific; lets just say you get your own coffee at my parents house if you want a full cup!! She has had an MRI on back and neck; MRI showed nothing wrong. Doc did notice a small amount of stenosis in spine but nothing that would cause her symptoms he said. She has gone from 72 to 92 in a matter of a few months.
