Hi to everyone, it's been awhile!!
I've recently had a Mri and wanted to share and also to get some input from you all.
L2-3 patent canal and foramina despite minimal disc bulge and facet hypertrophy.
L3-4 Moderate central stenosis is present reflecting disc bulging and facet hypertrophy. There is moderate ilateral neural foraminal narrowing at this level.
L4-5 prior lami and fusion, all is in good position. Central canal and neural foramina appear widely patent.
L5-S1 patent canal and foramina (?)
As some of you last new, I had been dealing with alot of pain and family issues. Well, the family issues have calmed, but this rotten pain has only got worse!!!!
I'm waiting for a call from a top Neuro here where I live, to see if he will see me. I hope this will happen soon as I'm about to lose my mind with pain.
I'm so sick of taking pain meds, but if I don't, I can't do anything but cry.
Along with the persistant pain that radiates down the leg and numbness, tingling ect., I've now inherited a constant pain that grips on my left hip and inner thigh (?), this pain also feels like the pain is radiating from my back into my stomach and it just aches so bad. What is this?
I hope all are having a painless day/night.
