Re: Anyone Know anything about this?
The reversal is actually quite common and in most cases is really not a huge deal.But it can cause some major problems in some people.I have the same reversal,and am finding out that there are many people I know and also many relatives who have this as well.i must say I was quite suprised as until I started finding out about all of the other people i know who have this, i thought it was something rather rare.Not so i guess.depending on if there are any compromised nerve roots or anything like that involved, it may not be a huge deal ,at least at this point in time.But as we age(ew) and the discs start to degrade more and more, we may start to see much more slippage and therefore, more problems.i am 43 right now, and I have a c spine that is basically a mess along with other major neuro deficits and pain syndromes but none of this is in anyway related to the reversal.at least not directly, from what two neurosurgeons have told me.but everyone is different so you don't really know just how this will affect you at some point.alot of it depends on the overall condition of your c spine and any other problems that might also be lurking.I hope this helps some and didn't cause you more confusion.lol.take care,marcia
