: Does any know more about this condition? I found out that I have six lower lumbar discs and they
: have never caused pain. I fell last year and I've been to a number of different type of doctors and nothing.
: I have pain on my lower left side of my back and pain in the back of my leg and buttocks on the left side.
: I have not been able to run because my left side gets tired quickly. Does any of this sound familiar?
: Does having Lumbarization make it worse?
I had the same type of pain in Aug. 1991, when my low back finally gave out. I don't know what lumbarization is, but your symptoms sound just like mind. I had a disk bulge and arthritis of the facet joints. I had surgery and the neurosurgeon cleaned out a bunch of bone spurs in my spinal area at L4-5. The disk wasn't that bad, so she left it alone. Have the doctors done an MRI on you? It sounds like you have a pinched nerve somewhere. Pat G.
