Multilevel disc bulging

I just had an MRI which showed bulges from L1, L2,L3 L4 and L5. There is facet degerenerative changes. Mild stenosisat L1 L2, moderate bilateral neuroforaminal narrowing. 

I know some of these findings are normal due to aging. 

My question is is it normal for all lumbar vertebrate to have this. 

My doctor is sending me to a neurosurgeon. 



  • Normal that depends what normal is..can it happen yes. Cause it happen to me. When my lower back went when I was doing absolutely nothing but sitting on the sofa. ( funny how that seems to happen)  it went from l2-s1..bulges and herniation down the line. Worst being l3/4 when a piece of the disc decided it wanted it's own party and sat itself on the nerve and permanently damaged it. But yes it does happen.

    Hope you find relief sooner rather then later
