Re: 6th Lumbar Vertebrae
just what sort of 'congenital" type of problem do have going on within that L6?anytime the spine is involved in any way with just about anything,it can cause its own form of hell.i also had a "congenital"(my birthmark) vascular malformation smack in the middle of my spinal cord.two NSs told me they just didn't cause pain.yea right.it took my third opinion at the U of MN to actually tell me all about these little SOBs and he believed i had real pain.it just takes the right doc with the appropriate level of real knowledge to tell you the ins and outs of any actual condition.
there is a really great back board here on these healthboards,if you just took a scroll on down there,there are many very knowledgable people who can help you out.i am really suorised you couldn't actually find any info on the L6?what did you use to look up info as far as keywords?i wish you lots of luck with your situation bb6.please keep me posted as to hjow things are going,K? **
