Hi,
Have had varying symptoms. I have damage to L4 and l5 in my back ongoing. Pins and needles left side down leg to foot numbness in left foot and lots of pain.
Recently I have had sore throat left side mostly, really dry throat that feels blocked, headaches,  neck pain , hard to regulate my temp, hard to get up even wake up, constant need for  rent.  Any ideas?

I do not understand " constant need for  rent."
Not an MD, but I do not think the throat problems are related to back pain. Sounds to me that you are having stress headaches & problems with pain meds. PT will help that. I went through the L4-L5 issues. Had a conservative back surgeon, which I would recommend. You do not want a doc who wants to operate without trying  conservative treatments. They should try PT, injections for pain, etc. When I could not stand on both feet, on toes only, it was time for surgery for me. That was in "07. I am fixed, after removal of benign cyst on spine, bone graft, hardware implantation, etc. Hard recovery, but worth it. Find a surgeon that only operates on backs. GOOD LUCK
