i had a MRI done 3 months ago and my doctor says that its not serious and just take some panadol. this is my mri results;
There is a history of possible radiculopathy or discopathy
Axial and sagittal sequences have been obtained
at L3/4 normal appearances are demonstrated.
At L4/5 there is a generalised bulging of the annalus with a broad base towards the left side compromise of the left lateral recess and exit foramen and loss of the fat signal inferiorly within the foramen. The associated nerve root appears to exit above this level but the appearances may well be of clinical significance. there are some degenerative changes of the posterior facet joints with some sclerosis and new born formation.
at L5/S1 there is again prominence of the annulus seen in relation to the origin of the left S1 nerve root and also some lipping passing laterally.
on a coronal reconstructions there is shown to be a minor scoliosis. please help me to understand this results and im always in pain when walking and standing..i live in a remote area in Australia and we have a very limited access to specialist.. thank you
