    Thank you, and I would think you are right. It seems strange that there is NOTHING that would be causing spinous process pain on palpation (and burning). Myofascial issues were eliminated by one radiologist.
    I’m more nervous about accepting “it’s nothing” now since my lumbar tumor was missed for awhile, even during the first surgery (exploratory).
    I’m going to continue hoping it’s just ligament issues, stay on the foam roller and tennis ball (YOUCH) and hope I get better. I’ll give that another month and pursue a diagnosis if that doesn’t work. I was working on a graduate degree and placed on medical leave and I’m not sure if they will allow me back in August if I don’t have an answer.

    Well- it is unlikely that this is a dangerous condition so watchful waiting is not a bad idea. If you still don’t have resolution of your symptoms, don’t hesitate to send your MRI and X-rays to me.

    Thank you doctor. I may end up doing that. I will contact your office, hopefully can pay by credit card. I don’t feel that whatever going on is life threatening but it can be life changing if not resolved. I am very pain tolerant. Im not dying with pain but it can wake me up.
    Hopefully my glowing t5 vessels are just very active and it’s not anything that should cause pain. :)
    hope to have this all resolved way before august.
    Thank you for what you do.

    I do not charge to simply look at the images. Again, to get a proper report, the radiologist I noted earlier would be the “official” report source.

    Dear Dr. Corenman,
    I may be taking you up on your offer of sending in my images for a glance over by you. I need an expert set of eyes to tell me if there is a reason seen in the images that my spine hurts. If nothing more than to tell me I need another radiologist opinion …
    or that there is absolutely no reason seen in the MRIs.

    Thank you.
