What are the symptoms of Spinal Stenosis?
Pain in Extremities
When the spinal cord and nerves become compressed or pinched a variety of symptoms may occur. Symptoms commonly associated with Spinal Stenosis are back pain, neck pain, tingling, pain in the extremities, leg numbness and leg weakness.
In extremely rare cases, typically, a herniated disc in the lower back can compress the cauda equina. The cauda equine is a bundle of spinal nerves and nerve roots that send signals to the pelvic organs and lower limbs. People with cauda equina syndrome may experience bladder control issues, sexual function problems and leg paralysis.
