It has been known for sometime that I had a large protrusion type herniated disc at c5/c6 and bulge at c3/c4. Holding off on ACDF because the large herniation has improved according to MRI, though the pain has NOT. Recently, my entire back has been hurting to the point where I cannot function normally and T-spine MRI was finally ordered. The MRI showed 6 more tiny to small herniated discs (t5 through t12), disc dessication and degenerative changes. I am 29 years old, just curious if it is normal to have so many herniated discs? I called the doctor to ask questions about my results, but haven't received a return call. I don't think she is too concerned. Just curious if anyone else thinks these results are startling. Thanks for any input.
