What exactly is Spinal Stenosis?

Hello everyone. Here I go again with yet another question tonight. I think I am overly-anxious because of my morning Spinal Injection. Spinal Stenosis showed up on my MRI, and I'm having a hard time understanding exactly what it is. I decided, just right now, to get better informed of what exactly is going on in my spine thats causing most of my sever back pain. The "unknown" is usually always a way worse thing for me because of the imagination I have. lol. Once again, thank you everyone here for being a new and wonderful part of my life today! Mykinzie aka Marla.

Re: What exactly is Spinal Stenosis?

hi mykinzie, I have stenosis as well. Stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal. Mine is congentital I was told, i was just born with it and with age it got worse. Have had it since the 90's. How was the injection? I have never had one before.
