Not an injury. I have severe spinal stenosis. Had different meds. They tried spinal injections several times. Then I had burning of the nerves on left side and right side. Stenosis is worse on my right side. I also have severe osteoarthritis of both knees with difficulty walking. I use a cane. Burning of nerves on left side is 100% pain free. On right 70% better. Now Dr will do each knee during next months. All other treatment failed.
