Hey Everyone- hoping someone can help clear up something for me. I recently went to my GP for hamstring/calf pain and had an x-ray done first. According to my doctor, I had stenosis (unchanged from an x-ray I had done 3 years ago) and she ordered an MRI. This MRI result was "mild degeneration at L1/L2, osteoarthritis throughout the spine, and no stenosis." Isn't that odd? Has anyone heard of this type of disparity between an x-ray and an MRI?
I start PT on Wednesday.
History: I am 41 now and I had a spinal fusion at age 10 for Spondylolisthesis and I had the plate/screw fusion in my neck about 10 years ago.
Thanks in advance for any help!!!
