Need help understanding what my xray results mean

edited 10/13/2014 - 7:45 PM in Lower Back Pain
I just had an xray of my lumbar spine and right and left knees today because I am having severe pain in my left leg and lower back. I have a history of blood clots, and had a clot ruled out. Can someone please help me understand what the results mean? I've had problems with sciatica and bulging discs in the last year and a half. Thanks.
