Back Problems board

It's been a while since my last post. Since then, I have been approved for SS disability and lost my job with the state. I was taking Norco 10/325 3 times a day for the last 2 years, but I have quit taking it for the last 3-4 months. I have noticed something lately that has me thinking...

I am in pain, but not as much as I used to be. My right leg is always in pain, but my left leg hasn't hurt as much in a while. It seems to be getting number, but not weaker though. My balance still sucks (I joke that I have the balance of a flat footed sasquatch). This worries me because when my neck ruptured (c7-t1) in 2003, I was in incredible pain for a day and a half, then the pain was gone. I then began losing ability very quickly (ability to walk, sensation, and to use the bathroom) for the next day or 2. I know that I am not going to become paralized from my current back issues (severe spinal stenosis, advanced multi level DDD, 2 herniated discs), but are my nerves becoming more damaged?
