Does Spodilolithesis And Spondilytis The Same?

Does Spodilolithesis And Spondilytis The Same?

I have seen my xrays and there is arthritis as well as the evidence of spinal S curve beginning as well as where the S1 Full on Shift occurs. My hips are very sore and swollen as well. What do you think?

Spondilolithes is a degenerate disease where portions of the spine is out of alignment with the other vertebrae (that's what my doc said anyways)..Spondylitis is a arthritis that attacks the spine and causes them to fuse together in a non natural way,pinches nerves and damages nerves and causes a loss of flexibility....both are under the category of Autoimmune Desease I think..hope this helps

People don't get it about what I am going thru. I read my Bible, other good books that motivate me. Good early morning 🌄 😴

Yes I agree you need an MRI. I had similar issues and ended up having surgery to remove a synovial cyst from S-1. But before surgery I had such painful attacks and my left leg from butt to bottom of foot has numbness. Take care of it now so it doesn’t become a bigger issue.
