answer to Anon, you really should discuss it with your wife as this could be a very serious problem. Spinal stynosis being one in which you spinal column is growing closed causing pressure on lower back nervev. L4-L5 lumbar being the most prominent in whch they pinch your sciatic nerve which can cause bladder control loss as well as other embaressing problems with loss of bowel control. I have recently had back surgery at 48 and had reprocussions such as you are dealing with and now am dealing with leg pain, bladder control loss and tingling in my leg and foot. DO NOT Wait until it gets to serious. SEEK professional help immediatly. If it is minor like a bladder infection it can be treated with antibiotics and if it more serious you will not want to wait until it causes more problems

Dear Anon_45781,

I agree that is very good advice! Although we always hope there is no serious cause behind our symptoms, sometimes there is. The earlier it gets diagnosed, the better the treatment options.

Yours in health,

Byroney
