I have had back pain for almost 6 years now. Mostly controlled with NASID and steroids for flare-ups.
The pain has been constant for the past 9 months with mostly bad days.
I had an MRI of SI Joints and lumbar spine and will not be able to see my RA doctor for another 2 months. I like to know what the following means.
“Modic changes within the anterior, superior and inferior aspects of lower thoracic and lumbar vertebral bodies”
“There is also an anterior paraspinal ossfication at L3-L4 with preservation of disc space and normal intensity within L3-L4”.
“There is no evidence of synovitis or any inflammatory type arthritis”
I really like to know about the Modic changes.
