    Welcome to S.H. forums. There are many here just like you and can surely sympathise.
    But you need to give more information because no one on the forums can give you any information based on a M.R.I.
    Who sent you in for the M.R.I. Are you dealing with a G.P. or a surgeon? do you have a pain management Dr.? What are you current prescriptions? What advice if any are your Dr's. giving you?
    And if you need to know your not alone in this, or just need to vent. This is the place to be.
    Good luck, Jim
