I had an MRI of my lumbar spine on 12/10/13. It basically shows arthritis and some stenosis. On the report it ranges from mild to moderate. This result does not match my pain level. I am in a lot of pain especially from sitting. At home I cannot sit on the chair or couch. At work I try not to sit whenever possible because it so painful. My husband doesn't believe I'm in that much pain since the mri results were moderate and mild. Has anyone ever dealt with their pain level not matching their mri results. And if anyone has dealt with a spouse who isn't that supportive and has some tips I'm all ears. My husband thinks I can exercise this away. I'm about 30 lbs overweight right now and going to weight watchers. So far I've lost 10 pounds. I'm walking most days on the treadmill, so its not like I'm just laying bed. I guess all of our pain thresholds are different. That's what the dr. said. I already go to pain management and I'm going on 1/21 to a neurosurgeon just for an evaluation.
I think that's in. Thanks for listening.
P.S. I gone through many injections, rhizotomy, and physical therapy already.
