Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board

Hi Wachi and welcome.

If you are experiencing loss of bladder... that could be cauda equina syndrome and you should NOT mess around with that! Have you had an MRI performed? What steps, besides chiro, have you taken? The MRI will tell you alot. Please don't mess around with this. I am not trying to scare you.

It would be good to do a search in Google on cauda equina... you can then judge for yourself what you will do next. :)

Hope this helps a little - Good Luck! [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love1.gif[/img]
