Burning, tingling, numbness, stabbing: back pain is not limited to the back.
Spine conditions are caused by many things, from the simple wear-and-tear that comes with aging to diseases, disorders, injuries, and more. Spine pain can radiate into the neck, head, arms, chest, buttocks and legs--in other words, the entire body. On the other hand, some conditions can produce very specific, localized pain, and some can develop over many years while producing no symptoms at all. Proper diagnosis and a treatment plan that seeks to treat the pain and prevent its return are key.
Common Symptoms Include:
All Spine Conditions
Back pain symptoms vary as much as the causes do.
Basic Spine Anatomy
The spine extends from the skull to the tailbone and is made up of 33 bones, known as the vertebrae. Between each vertebrae is a disc, which serves as a cushion between the bones, helping also to protect them and the nerves that run from the spinal cord to the rest of the body. The spinal nerves exit the vertebral column in close proximity to the disc and the vertebrae, so if disc material or bone spurs impinge on a nerve, it can cause pain, numbness, weakness and other symptoms. The spine is one of the most marvelously designed and complex parts of the body, but it’s also susceptible to a variety of problems that can cause considerable pain.

As soon as I awakened from the procedure most of my pain was gone. Was able to travel back home to Louisiana from Houston, Texas the day after the surgery.
