Spinal stenosis and myelopathy (keloids?)

All my life, my skin has been susceptible to growing keloids whenever I injured myself.

I was involved in a car accident in July 2005 and am told that my condition is progressing( now I have spinal stenosis and myelopathy). Could my type of skin possibly play a part in how my inner body is healing?

Any info would be helpful. Take care and God Bless.

Re: Spinal stenosis and myelopathy (keloids?)

Being that the spinal canal and the spinal nerves are very deep (beyond the muscle layers, etc) it seems unlikely that keloids could be causing any problems or discomfort. An MRI would show any nerve impingement, herniated disc, fractures or any abnormal growths. The only way to know the cause for your pain is to see your physician and maybe have an mri.
