I was searching DDD and came across your post from 4 years ago. I had DD in my lumbar discovered when I was 20. First MS symptoms, dx with CFS, when I was 23. Broke my tailbone when I was 31. DX with PPMS when I was 50. Spinal MRI found DD in my neck. Spinal lesions are C2,C3,C6. Might note that back when I was 14 I had severe physical fatigue that lasted less than 24 hours, no fever, no other feeling of being ill. If I were to venture a guess, the MS was starting back in teen years. Never had much in the way of fast food as a kid and really not much of fast food consumption until I got married to my second husband. So many talk about diet making a difference, but even if that is true, what damage is done is done. Two things I did different than most people are mostly cooking at home and not working outside the house. Or perhaps I would have seen my deficits more often had I tried to run a 10k.

Did you have your back problems before or after you knew you had MS? Just curious which came first?

I have degenerative disc, spinal stenosis and some beginnings of arthritis all in just 3 or 4 vertebrae or my cervical spine. Chiropractic medicine seems to help a lot.
