I have been suffering with lower back and on and off leg pain for 2 years. I finally Decided to go to a chiropractor in January to see what could be done. After numerous adjustments and physical therapy I still have not had much relief. I had an mri this week and got the results thursday. It's says at l4 and l5 I have a central extrusion with migration below the 5 endplate. I have a left protrusion possible extrusion on l5 l6. The report said there is a mass on the left 5 nerve root. Also mild central stenosis on the 4 5 level. There is more on tthe report just can't remember right now. They are now sending me to a neurosurgeon instead of pain specialist.
Just wondering what I'm in for. I just cant take the pain anymore and Dr said this has been going on for a long while. Will Injections really help with this because of the length of time this has been going on? It's seems to get better for a couple of months and just keeps coming back with a vengeance.
