I am 26 M .I have sciatica pain in both of my legs. Sometimes more in one than another.Though i can handle this pain, but i fear that as time will pass it will increase. It started as lower back pain a month and a half ago than in one leg. I injured my back during exercise again and it is now in both the legs.
My major MRI findings are :-
1) Schmorl's node noted along the superior endplate of L4 vertebral body.
2)Diffuse bulge of l4/l5 disc is indenting anterior thecal sac and causing mild bilateral lateral recess narrowing.
3) Minimal bulge of L3/4 disc is also noted. There is mild ligamentum flavum hypertrophy.
I went to a orthopedic he said it is just mild bulge at l4/l5 and have given me gabapentin. I want to know if i should see someother doctor like neurosurgeon or should i look for surgery as an option. I don't want this pain to go worse.
If anybody could help me in understanding above findings.
