Then I got an MRI scan done and following are the impressions:

I got a MRI scan for my severe back pain and following are written in the impression section of my report:

2. Moderate degree of discs desciccation noted at L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs
3. Diffuse bulging of intervertebral disc noted at L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels causing mild compression of dural sac
