I had a ct scan done of my lumbar and just gotten the result online and don't have an appt. until middle of February to discuss the result and get a diagnosis. Short history here, 36 yrs female, been dealing with hip problem for over 3 years and hip doctor referred me to spine doctor bc of tenderness in my lumbar on the left side, back didn't bother me, just very tender to the touch in that spot, but leg pain a lot, after the hip doctor did straight leg test on me, it aggravate it worse and been dealing with weird numbness, like really asleep numb and the pins and needle, esp strong ones, happens while I'm doing thing in my foot and lower leg and also pain. Not sleeping good anymore, the leg pain always wake me. My test result says this..............................
Multiaxial unenhanced imaging is obtained through the lumbar spine with
coronal and sagittal reconstructions.
There is a appearance suggesting a chronic spondylitic defect at L1 on
the left. There is an element of pseudoarthrosis at the spondylitic
defect which is best seen on the sagittal imaging #24 and the coronal
The remainder of the imaging of the lumbar spine is unremarkable. The
disc spaces are well-maintained. The remainder of the facet joints are
normal. Good alignment is seen.
Unremarkable study of the lumbar spine with the exception of
the finding at L1 likely a chronic process.
Thank you for any help and any advice would be appreciated. **********************************
