Is spinal stenosis back pain?
Spinal stenosis is not back pain, but it can be a cause of back pain. Stenosis implies narrowing of the spinal canal because of thickened pedicles, or hypertrophied ligaments, or a disk bulge, or a tumor, etc. Sometimes this can cause pain if it aggravates pain-generating structures within or around the spinal canal.

Asked in Cardiovascular Health
What is an aortic stenosis?
Aortic valve stenosis is a disease in which the opening to the aortic valve is narrowed, keeping blood from pumping well and increasing pressure the left ventricle. It leads to the walls of the left ventricle thickening in order to continue to pump blood. Eventually the left ventricle can become dilated, reducing the ability of the heart to pump blood. The most common cause is age-related calcification of the aortic valve. The symptoms of aortic stenosis are initially shortness of breath and later chest pain, loss of consciousness or heart failure.
