    Lumbar spinal stenosis

    I have been having painful back pain. To where I canít move sometimes. L4-L5. I was told the disc is wearing down and it feels like a screwdriver is in my back. The pain is so unbearable I feel it in my legs now. But for some reason Iím starting to feel pain on my left side close to my stomach. Can nerves compress and irritate my side? Please help me I would love a response

    Thank you very much

    Yes it can happen. Are you doing PT? Any therapy of any kind?

    The nerves can definitely be irritated by a disc or osteoarthritis. I assume you have had an MRI to diagnose what is going on and seeing a neurologist or orthopedist ? This can be treated, sometime conservatively, sometimes surgically.
