Anyone else w/ DDD have a tender spot on your spine?
I have DDD and a herniation at L5-S1. I'm having an ALIF done on May 22nd. There's one symptom that I have that I haven't seen listed anywhere. Sometimes when I'm having a bad pain day, the problem part of my spine seems hypersensitive to touch. Any pressure hurts and feels weird, makes my skin crawl. I can't even lean back in a chair because I can't stand for anything to touch that part of my spine. My PM specialist seemed surprised when I brought it up. It makes me wonder if I'm the only one. It has me a little worried. Thanks!
