Hello myself sony, i am suffering from severe lower backpain from last 7 months its on left side lower back near buttocks and it moves to the left leg too. I had a recent CT Scan of my left spine which i shows :

There is some straighting of lumbar cuvature.

Mild scolisis with concavity to the right is seen - ? Positional.

There is suggestion of minimal posterior disc bulge L4-5 & L5-S1.

Partial spina bifida S1 is seen.

Please let me know wht is the real problem here and how it can be treated.

Thank you

  • Hi Sony. Given the findings I'd want an MRI next. It will clearly show the disc problems that the scan suggests. Can you get a referral to a spine specialist (assuming it was your GP that ordered the scan)? Once they know exactly what they're dealing with there are many procedures, physical therapies & pain management tools to help you.
    You know that you have some kind of damage there so PLEASE stay away from chiropractors. Adjustments are a really BAD idea with structural damage. I wouldn't do anything too strenuous until you've got specialist advise. I just walk mostly.
    You can try all the usual little things to make you more comfortable. Has your doc prescribed any meds? OTC meds & creams can help a bit. Ice/heat, hot Epsom salt baths, aromatherapy massage oils help me.

  • We really can't diagnose or suggest treatments. We're just pain sufferers like you. If you look through the different forums you will find one on scoliosis & you can read about others experiences & the things they've tried to manage their pain & treat their condition. I always find that really useful. The best thing to do is see a specialist for more diagnostics & his recommendations for you.

    If you go to Forum Navigation (top left) & Forums Home....it's under Conditions. Hope you find some help ;-)

    Many GPs don't prescribe pain meds anymore. You can request a referral to Pain Management. A specialist will have far more experience & tools at their disposal to help you.
