hello all you with hemangioma problems. i to have had back problems for 20 + yrs , pain ,pressure, burning, effects whole left side of my body. been telling doctors it wasnt normal back pain and felt it was coming from spine. finally 2008 was diagnosed with large vertebral hemangioma with a good mri.they did prosedure called vertebraplasty,didnt work! tried nuerotransmitter didnt work!. right now im seeing pain doctor whos doing all he can to help, thinking of trying pain pump. if it wasnt for long term meds hes got me on i would be in bed most of time. there is lot of info on internet on vertebral tumors that do agree that large symptomatic vertebral hemangiomas can cause pain! numbness, and more. i had to quit my job , im now on ssd . good thing because i can hardly use my back without pain. i need hrs of bed rest daily just so i can do limited things i do daily right now. well im done crying for now ,i"ll check in soon.
