I just go the results of my MRI which are
"At the T12-L1 level there is a small right paramedian annular tear with very minimal disc protrusion. There is no significant effacement of CSF anterior to the spinal cord and there is no alteration in cord contour. There is no central canal or neural foramen stenosis."
I have a basic idea of what this means but my doctor didn't seem to think it was that bad, and wasn't sure it could be causing my pain (pain on the right side under the right ribs in front and back).
Do you guys think these finding are enough to cause the pain I am having? I am going to see a pain management doc next month but just was curious what everyone thought?
