Anyway, I saw the doctor for the follow-up for the back problem today. Now the white spike that I mentioned I saw was actually a bad picture/MRI scan. (Caused myself to get over-worried about something that turned out to be nothing.) However, I do have some minor disk degeneration in my lower back, which is the cause of my back pain. So physical therapy has been scheduled to fix that crap. Hopefully it'll go away.
Oh, and I have may have to see a neurosurgeon, for the doctor did notice something odd with my spinal canal. I'll probably have a better report on that after I go to one.
