    help! lumbar spinal stenosis may be inherited

    I am 23 years old and my family is now coming to the realization that the doctors in this area are uninformed. My greatgrandmother had severe spinal pains and lost function of her legs, she is now passed away. Her daughter, my grandmother, has recently begun getting severe pains in her lower back. She goes for testing next week because her daughter was diagnosed with it last week. She will be in a wheelchair by christmas.Her sister, my mom, has had two surgeries in 5 years. Her disks in her neck are bulging and degenerating. Her doctor has told her she will need more surgery. Is this illness inherited? Do I dare dream about having children one day, knowing that i could very well pass this on to them? Someone help, I am scared.
