Spondylolisthesis Allissa Specht 35 kids; Essexville, Michigan 5397 posts22nd Apr
Can anybody shine some light on this condition? I was just diagnosed with it. Moderate spondylolisthesis with compression at the L3 and L4 vertebrae. I was seen in the ER a week ago for severe back and leg pain. The pain starts in my lower back and shoots down my buttocks into my legs. My right foot also goes numb from time to time. I have been on Ibuprofen 800 mg but it is not really helping. The pain is constant. I was initially diagnosed with Sciatica, but after x-rays they found these other problems. What's going to happen now? I'm studying to be a nurse, is the back problems going to hinder my career?! I am really kind of scared that my back is going to hurt the rest of my life because of this!
