Newbie L5/S1 + Sacroliac joints billaterally

Hi there,

Have been searching the net for information after seeing my GP for the result of a lower back xray for pain in my mid back.

Apparently I have beginning osteoarthritis L5/S1 + Mild Osteoarthritis in the Sacroiliac joints bilaterally.

The Doctor said nothing to worry about but drink more milk. Hence, my curiosity kicked in tonight and I started researching, as I have massive pain in my neck region, thought I had sciatica but now I wonder if it's all connected to the above?!

At least now I understand why after standing for a while I am in excruciating pain in my lower back! And possibly why I feel the constant need to stretch and crack my lower back?!

This seemed like a friendly and helpful place to lay my weary bones at. :) so here I am.
