This is my first time posting and I am hoping to get some advice from someone who has experienced something similar. I am a 21 year old female and for almost 2 months I have experienced sever lower back and leg pain, I also have a tingling sensation in both feet. Last week I was admitted to the hospital to have tests done the MRI showed:
L4-5 broad based bulging of the annulus with a central protrusion. This does efface the ventral aspect of the thecal sac and is suspected to be encroaching on the traversing right L5 root.
L5-S1 minimal broad based bulging of the annulus is seen.
All my doctor told me is I need to see a neurosurgeon, I have an appointment with one but not for several months. My doctor didn't explain to me what is going on , if anybody is able to offer some advice or knowledge that would be wonderful!
