Back and Neck Injury/Falling Down A Flight Of Stairs Injury To Lumbar Spine


I Fell Down Patio Steps. When I Fell I Completely Slid Down Those Steps On My Lower Spine. As A Result Of This Terrible Fall My Lower Back Has Never Been The Same. I Have Constant Pain And Shooting Pain and Numbness In My Left Leg. I Have At Times Very Painfull Spasams radiating down my leg where Im unable to even place my foot down to stand up or straighten my leg out it locks up.My MRI Was taken in 2011.The Impression was Mild Bulging Annuluswithdisiccationof the disc and narrowing the disc at L2-L3.Also There is bilateral facet hypertrophy at L4-L5 and L5-S1. Can You Possibly ERxplain This All To Me I Also Feel Like Electricty Is Pulsating Thru My Lower Spine And Down My Left Leg Can It Possibly Be A Pinched Nerve Or My Sciatica?
