Numbness/Tingling in Mid Back ?

I have had mid back around T6 or 7 intermittent numbness and tingling nd pain going on. The MRI and CT showed all normal except a spondolythesis at L3-L4 in the Lumbar. Doctors say this could not cause the thorasic problem. They have no explanation and think I'm nuts, the pain should be in low back but it is not. Anyone?

Re: Numbness/Tingling in Mid Back ?

I'm having burning pain in my lower back (l5-s1) as well as in my upper butt. I also had an MRI and came up with no herniation. Dr tells me it can very well be arthritis. I know how you feel..the pain is coming from somewhere right?!

I think you should get a myelogram. This test is very accurate. It will pick up whatever the MRI missed.
