Schmorl's Node...

jsirabellajjsirabella Posts: 311
I had my 2nd MRI and unfortunately my herniation at my L4-L5 is the same or a bit worse, estimated at 4mm. But the thing I found strange was in my first MRI they mentioned an incidental small Schmorl node at T12 endplate and now very prominent.

The doctor does not seem to care about this finding and they put it as a side note. Is it something to be not taken so seriously?

I wonder if it is the reason I get my pain in the T5-T6 area sometimes.



  • According to my MRI, I have one of these in my lumbar area. I did some research on it and it does not seem to be a big deal. I know that I experience no obvious pain from that area.

    From what I read they "usually" cause no symptoms and are just a sign of wear and tear of the spine. That being said, you should definitely bring it up with a doctor - especially if you think you are getting pain in that area. I can only advise you about what I've read online as my doctor never seemed to think it was an issue with me.
