Hey, I had a MRI done, and my doctor isnt helping me very much and I was wondering if any one know what I can do for this (meaning llike sould I take in more calcium or something)
MRI of the Lumbar Spine
I had a Standard pulse sequences proformed on an open MR system
Findings: Threre is straighting of the normal lumbat lordosis. Vertebral body height and marrow signal are maintained. There is no acute compression fracture or infiltrative marrow lesion seen *finaly some good news*
At visualized T11-12 and T12-L1 levels, there is mild disk degeneration with slight spondylitic change.
The lumbar disks are intact. Minimal endplate spondylitic change/ Bulging disk noted at L4-5 and L5-S1.
A level of significant central or foraminal stenosis is seen.
The spinal canal and conus medullaris are normal
IMPRESSION----- * what does this part mean *
1 disk degeneration with minimal spondylitic change/bulging disks at T10-11 and T11-12. -------* Is that half repetitive *
2 Minimal spondyolsis and and bulging anuli at L4-5 and L5-S1.
3 Straightened lumbar lordosis. This may be seen with muscular spasm.
My "doctor" now said nothing could help me with this that the pain should lower after a while but 1would always be there, well I think a back brace or something, anything would help.
Any suggestions would help out alot
