Hello I am new and this is my first post.
Tomorrow I get the results of my MRI with the Ortho/sports medicine guy. I came to see him few weeks back after the tendon on my hip popped..and started PT. But the therapist kept saying she thinks my problem is more involved and maybe the MRI he ordered should be considered by me now.
(didn't want the copay cost). Its been a rough year with many medical evals.
I picked up the written MRI report: bilateral hips..bone spurs..mild arthritic.
1) moderate/promoninent central stenosis L4-5
2) Foraminal encroachment..moderate/prominent degree on L4-5
3) Disk disease and fact arthropathy
4. Grade I spondyloishesis on L4-5
I have PT before the MD. I have more electric-shock-like nerve pain in legs. My thigh/calves are tight and achy. I cannot sit..stand or lay flat for long periods. I have had tTingling/numbness..tremors in legs. They thought I had MS for years..if it weren't for my HIP problem.. I would not had an MRI of lumber.
Any ideas of what I am headed for?
