Re: Mild Disc Space Narrowing
Someone really did not explain this well to you. The narrowing you are referring to is not between discs. It is where a disc is between two vertibrae. L5 stands for your fifth lumbar vertibra. S1 stands for Sacral one. The term L5,S1 refers to the disc between the two. What is probably happening is your disc is narrowing. When we are young, discs have more moisture. As we age, they dry out, so the tend to narrow. So you will almost certainly have additional narrowing of the space because you will get older and the disc will dry out. This may or may not be the cause of your pain. I am also curious who gave you the Xrays and where your pain is. I hope this is helpful. I am sorry to hear you are having problems. Especially someone so young. Good luck!
