Re: What the heck does this mean??? MRI scan
You have two herniated discs. The L stands for lumbar. You have 5 lumbar vertibrae which are in your lower back. The disc between the vertibrae are identified by listing the vertibrae above and below the disc. If you are having back or sciatic pain, both or just one of these could be the cause. What type of symptoms led you to get an MRI?
