I am a 26 year male and very depressed nowadays because of the recurring lower back pain. I have had a lower back problem due to the disc compression between L5/S1 five years ago, it was healed then after four months but has recurred now because of my excessive riding of bike (with damaged shock absorbers) and long sitting on PC at office. I had an MRI yesterday the report of which interprets as follows:
MRI of Lumbosacral Spine Full Study
No evidence of osteomyelitis or tumor mass lesion.
Small hemangioma is noted in body of L1 vertebra
Mild diffuse disc bulge is seen at L5/S1 level with focal annular tear posteriorly causing mild compression over anterior thecal sac. Small focal annular tear and disc dessications also noted at this level.
No canal stenosis or foraminal narrowing is seen
Please find the image of MRI on the link below: (and confirm me whether it's bulged or herniated)https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/11043170_10153632142518056_1172302295402647436_n.jpg?oh=5c081addde7941ab38fb9a11de868c94&oe=55B6D56C&__gda__=1433511802_0cf81d5bba0d5917b7a4fdefd74c4ab8
Please suggest me what to do? Should I follow the bed rest? The pain is not severe but it's uncomfortable. I have also felt tingling at feet couple of days ago.
Thanking you in anticipation.
