I have congenital and injury stenosis in the cervical and lumbar spine. I also have a benign lumbar spinal tumor. There are 12 ruptured/herniated discs in my lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine. I have been having bad head pain and blacking out because i have a compressed spinal cord. I often wonder where its being squished the most.
There are two types of spinal stenosis: lumbar stenosis and cervical stenosis, I suffer from both. While lumbar spinal stenosis is more common, cervical spinal stenosis is often more dangerous because it involves compression of the spinal cord. Cervical spinal cord stenosis may lead to serious symptoms, including major body weakness or even paralysis.
