Re: Was ask If I have DDD, But Neuro hasn't said anything.
DDD is degenerative disc disease.It is an ongoing slow breakdown of the disc material that is in between the vertebrae.If you had it,it would most likely state it on your MRI report as it shows itself enough to the radiologist who is reading your films that they would see a degeneration of many different discs,as opposed to damage in just one or two.From what you have stated in your post, it does not sound to me like you have it.Your problems sound more like separate issues.Have you had an MRI? i am assuming that you did by what you have mentioned.If so, I am most certain that if you had it it would state it in your MRI report.i was Dxed with DDD three years ago when I had my first MRI.And every report(seven of them)from my many MRIs states it is there.If you do not have your report,call the place where you had the MRI done and request a copy.you should have one anyways for your personel records.I hope this helped.Marcia
