I finally called my doc to find out what was wrong with my back besides having DDD. She told me I had...
Degenerative disc in L1-L2 and L5-s1
I have bulging disc L3-L4
herinated disc L2-L3
The Doc also said it's minamile and mild
Does that mean I have a really bad back or does everything have these problems with DDD???? Are Any of those things I mentioned as part of neck


  • Did your doctor not go over your MRI and explain things to you? Unfortunately we can't interpret MRI findings.

    The part that you posted is all L (which is your lumbar spine) not your neck. It is always good to hear words like mild as oppossed to moderate or severe.

  • the doc didn't even tell I had these things his asstiant told me over the phone the doc won't see me until March he prescribed me PT for 8wks 2-3 times a week I don't really know what's going on and I was suppost to have mri on neck and back but think they only gave me mri on back. I don't know I'm just confused on what's going on but relieved that it's more than ddd because some of the people say ddd don't cause that severe of pain.
