Re: Mri lumbar spine
It sounds like you have some nerve compression. Do you have sciatica or pain down you legs from your butt down the back of your thighs and/or feet numbness or tingling? Or do you just have back pain? Either way you may need a good surgeon to assess the MRI for you if the pain you have is getting worse. If not some more conservative treatment may suffice. A good pain specialist or physio may also be able to explain your MRI to you. Good luck. Allan.
