    Hi Everyone,
    Do any of you know about "Facet Joint Syndrome?" Some years ago I saw a chiropractor for extreme low-back pain, and he said I had Facet Joint Syndrome. I'd never heard of that. I thought I had a pinched siatic (sp?) nerve. Just wondering . . .

    Thank you.

    MRI's ordered by our FMS/CFS specialist from head to base of spine. They found moderate Facet joint degeneration and a couple bulges in me and Gary wow, his back is just a mess arthritis and degenerative disk and facet disease and multipul herniated disks and some bulges. He had to have cervical fusion and what I call rotor rootering done 18 months ago and will need more.

    Good luck and if you haven't had it checked through an MRI you might want to.

    Kim and Gary
