Thanks for looking. I am new to all this MRI and back pain stuff. My Dr. isn't real helpful. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me what is going on with my back. I have had problems now for 6 months. Dr. first said it was just a sprain then sciatica and now spondylotisthesis. Every time I go it's something diffrent???? I might add it is a Workman Comp. Dr. so I think he is trying to do bare minimum and send me on my way.
Here is what I have from the MRI report:
L3-4 mild disc bulge with mild facet arthropathy and bilateral mild neural froaminal narrowing.
L4-5 Disc desiccation and central broad-based disc protrustion 2.5mm in the AP dimension with an annular tear. Moderate facet arthropathy and bilateral moderate neural foraminal narrowing due to underlying disc bulge.
L5-S1 Mild disc bulge and moderate facet arthropathy with bilateral mild neura foraminal narrowing.
So far I have had PT which helped some with mobility. I had weekness in my leg and numbness in side of hip and foot.
I have now had 2 injections 1st one did nothing. 2nd has helped a little bit but I can tell it's already wearing off and it's been 5 days. Injections have caused my blood sugars to sky rocket.
I have tried to look each thing up but it can become confussing.
