I have had shooting pain in my lower back for about 8 weeks now. It just comes spasmodically and it is very very painful, I cannot move. I slowly get to move again.
Often this is when I have been sitting at my computer for a length of time. Or if I bend down to pick up something.
I had CT scans of the lumbar spine
There is a mild lumbar scollosis concave to the left. There is marked loss of disc height at L5/S1 and there are small osteophytes at the lower lumbar spine.
L4/5 Level there is a minor disc buldge with minor compression of the anterior theca. There are short dedicles and prominent facet joints and the canal dimentions are borderline
L5/S1 Level there is a trivial facet joint degeneration .
Please can someone else give me some sort of relief plan. My doctor seems to shrug off any significant causes.
