Answer Hi Kathy,
As for the explanation of your condition, you should ask your doctor to go over it with you as it is difficult to clearly communicate that through written words. Try a chiropractor who specializes in corrective therapy or Chiropractic Biophysics. You can go to www.ideaspine.com to find one who is certified. The chiropractor will not only explain all of what you have going on, but work on correcting the structure, instead of just manipulating your spine.
What I can tell you is that the condition you are describing can create all kinds of symptoms including the ones you are experiencing.
I'm sorry if I can't be of more help, but hopefully you can talk to a CBP certified chiropractor in your area who can.
