My interim family doctor told me yesterday I do not have nerve root compression. I asked him what happens when I put a load on my spine 3 times and 3 times he interrupted me with something completely different. He does not know that I already have a copy of my MRI and on it it clearly states that my L4 nerve is displaced by the disc plus spondylosis at both levels. My L5 nerve has no visible fat around it and it also is displaced, also moderate disc space narrowing. Also noted that I have moderate foramenal stenosis and a disc herniations. So I am going back to work and hopefully I don't sever any nerves, or maybe I do hope it does.
On another note my usual family doctor who is on holidays said I do have pinched nerves. I'm at a loss as to what to do, so I'm going back to work.
