What are the symptoms of a Sprain?
There may be no symptoms of spinal stenosis, or symptoms may appear slowly and get worse over time. Signs of spinal stenosis include:
• Pain in the neck or back
• Numbness, weakness, cramping, or pain in the arms or legs
• Pain going down the leg
• Foot problems
One type of spinal stenosis, cauda equine syndrome, is very serious. This type occurs when there is pressure on nerves in the lower back. Symptoms may include:
• Loss of control of the bowel or bladder
• Problems having sex
• Pain, weakness, or loss of feeling in one or both legs.
If you have any of these symptoms, you should call your doctor right away.
