Thanks for your query.
You have not mentioned if you too have spina bifida
Due to spinal stenosis
(narrowing of the spinal canal
), there is compression over the nerves which supply the buttocks and lower limbs.
Initial non-operative treatment with pain-killers, reduction of swelling with use of steroids
can be tried. If there is no response, surgery to widen the canal and remove compression over the nerves, is the only option.
You have not mentioned age. If the problems, including curved spine) have been since childhood, it may be a congenital condition. I am not aware of your country's laws, whether disability
due to congenital conditions is entitled to compensation. You will have to consult the concerned authority to learn about the entitlements for dla.
