Hi everyone,

I've been recently diagnosed with Mild Levoscoliosis, minimal disc space narrowing at L3/L4. No evidence of spondylolysis but have degenerative changes in both sacroiliac joints.

Facet arthropathy at L5/S1 bilaterally.

Main diagnosis is Mild levoscoliosis with DDD.

DDD at L3/L4.

Not sure where to go next or what pain meds to ask for, for the constant lower back pain around my hips where the pain radiates down my legs and thighs. But constant pain in the lower middle of my back.



  • Welcome to SH >:D< Have you been referred to pain management and tried any injections to alleviate the pain. There are facet injections, sacro illiac joint injections, steriod injections and many others. You can search on the spine health for information on these. Who did you go through to get the results you listed? Do you see a spine specialist or just your primary at this point? Are you on any medication currently for the pain?

    There is a wealth of information on this site for any condition concerning your spine that you can think of. The best part is that you get the information along with support from others who know exactly what you are going through and can understand the limitations your pain has put on your life and daily routine.

    Please feel free to PM me with any questions, comments or concerns you may have. I am not a medical professional and all my views are based on my own personal experience and/or opinion.
  • Sunshine! Welcome and wish you the best of luck!:)
