had an mri this afternoon of my lower back.
ive been having lower back pain for several years, i had a bad car accident in august and since then the severity has increased a lot, about an 8 out of 10 most days. ive just finished 10 weeks of physio but it doesnt feel any better. i went to see an orthopedic dr (who i cant see for another 3 weeks with the diagnosis) and wondered if anyone can give me a heads up on what may be going on ? my dr said he thought there was a fracture in one or maybe 2 of my vertebrae (after having 2 xrays) said there is some wear and tear but was also concerned about my spinal cord around the lower vertebrae.
ive circled where about the pain is and it looks different to the other area of my spine on the mri scans.
any info is appreciated
