    Spongyloltis

    Sorry if I have spelt that wrong but I am not a doctor.

    When I was 14 I got a scan done and the doctor said it was 4mm disc slip L 4 L5 and I was born with out a hook to hold that disc in place. He said if he done surgery then he would have to do another one when I'm old .

    22 now and still hurts. When I lay on my side my leg get cramps. And for 2 years my neck been needing to pop 8 times aday if I don't I get headaches is that to do with my spine

    It's spondylitis. And yes, those issues are probably related. You should see a neurosurgeon to determine what you need to do at this point.

    Re: Spongyloltis

    Welcome to the board. You may be talking about a spondylolisthesis. This is when one vertebra slips over the top of the adjacent vertebra. This can create some instability at this segment in the spine. If you look at an imagine of a normal spine, the edges of the vertebrae line up. With a spondylolisthesis, you will see a slight indentation...like a stair step.

    This would cause lower back pain and /or radiating pain down the leg or legs. It would not cause headache or pain in upper body.

    Spondylolisthesis is something that occurs sometimes in teens who are heavily involved with sports where the back is spent in hyper-extension like gymnastics, diving, dance, etc. or in contact sports like football, rugby, etc.

    It would be wise to have an ongoing relationship with a spine surgeon who can follow the spondylolisthesis or whatever it is. If thatís what it is, it should be followed as it can slip further. (They can stabilize and not slip further...but you cannot tell without an X-ray.)
