  • Sorry none of us are doctors or authorized to read or interpret MRI reports. You can google a lot of your questions and get answers, but the best way to get your answers are from your spine doctor. When is your next appointment? Have you tried taking prednisone to decrease inflammation or tried epidurals? I understand your pain and wish you luck with finding the right treatment.

    I don't have an appointment with the spine doctor yet. I have to wait until october. That is when my insurance kicks in. I have tried several epidurals, mbb, nerve root affibilations, predisone, gaba, advil, percocets, norco, flexeral, soma, tramadol, pt, acupuncture, massage, and traction. some has worked some have not but none of them work for a good. Of time the most relief I received was from the affibilation and that was for about 3 months until the nerves grow back. I use hot and cold packs and rice socks.

    thank you for taking the time to respond to my post I appreciate it I will keep looking around to see what other information I can find out.
