Hi, I'm a newbie here. I just found you all, and have just spent a bit of time reading backwards in the posts. Lots of great information.

I just had a myelogram done to determine the extent of back problems and what the possible cause of the problems I have been having in my nech has been.

Well being the impatient type, I got a hold of a copy of the radiologists report and big shockaroo...

I was expecting the disc bulges, and a few other things that re in there but I was not expecting to see the words "degenerative arthritic changes", and "degenerative arthritic change" through the report.

I mean it is in the whole thing... C2-3, C3-4, C4-5, I don't have it at C5-6, but I have it at C6-7 along with endplate sclerosis and osteophyte formation and a Schorl's node. Also at C2-3 I have a spur... Then there is nothing wrong to L4-5 which is where I start up again... had a dicectomy there 7 years ago. I also have endplate sclerosis and osteophyte formation there... then L5-S1 Ihavd the degenerative arthritic changes again... and none of that take in to account the disc bulges.

I find this ... interesting... to say the least.

This certainly explains the aches and pains and the fact that nothing seems to "match" as far as diagnosises go.

I'll probably try for natural therapies as far as that will take me, and do surgeries for the other stuff.

Anyway... that's me in a nutshell.
