After having problems dince the age of 30 an MRI has just shown narrowing of the spinal columb. And flattening of my spinal cord from C4 to C7.  No one has said spinal stenosis and the junior nurologist i saw has ordered more MRIs on my lower back and neck.  Although i suffer with numbness in arms and hands and a lot of pain in neck my symptoms of pain are worse in my legs and lower back.  Im 43 am i too young to have spinal stenosis?

    Hi @Emile - Welcome to the community. I'm sorry to read about the problems you're facing. As steve51 has said, unfortunately we can't answer your query, tho other members may have some understanding. We are here to support you however, as steve51 also said. Have you had the results back from your more recent MRIs? :)
