So I just had back surgery today and as I sat in the waiting room to go back I looked around and noticed that I am way too young to be having this problem (24yrs). I was the youngest there by a good 30yrs or better. Anyhow, two weeks ago a piece of my L5 disk broke off and was anchored on a nerve and pushing against my spinal cord making my left leg numb and foot feel like it was asleep. My neurosurgeon kind of laughed at me and said he usually only sees something like this in people 60yrs+. So I'm curious, what things have you experienced at an age much younger than usual?
