I have been having back pain for several years with no real reason, I recently starting having trouble o my right side with both my elbow and ankle and I am not sure if it is related to my back pain. In the past I have tried PT and a chiropractor; recently had an MRI w/o contrast with no real reason showing for my pain. the findings read: Vertebral body height, alignment, and bone marrow signal are normal. The conus terminates at a normal level at L1. There are no cord signal abnormalities. Focal abnormal signal intensity is seen in the 12 thoracic and third lumbar vertebrae suggesting focal areas of fat island. There is a asymmetrical sacralization of the fifth lumbar vertebra with left pseudoarthrosis. There is a decrease in signal intensity of the disc L5-S1. The paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
