    There is nobody on the forum qualified to give opinions on medical conditions, but share their experiences.

  • This site is of tremendous help & support particularly once you know your diagnosis. Without a physical diagnosis & detailed conversation it's impossible for anyone here to know what's going on with you. Over the age of 21 everyone's spine starts to show some flaws but most people don't ever have symptoms. My specialists say "I treat the person not the MRI". I know it sounds disappointing at first but we really can't tell someone what to do based on just MRI results. We could do more harm than good. MRI's don't show everything & don't describe your pain.

    Having said that, a disc sitting on a nerve is never good. You need to see a specialist but if I remember right, you are.
    Osteoarthritis & DDD.

    This site is open to everyone's opinion. The strength and power of this is the large international membership base and the extensive medical libraries and videos.

    All we ask is for members to abide by the rules that govern this site. A simple request considering the return on investment.
