Re: What does this mean?
Of course I'm no doc & cant diagnose you, but I had a couple similiar things in my lumbar spine, which I was told was degenerative disc disease and osteo-arthritis. They said because of the arthritis and disc disease, my discs are wearing away and bulging and tearing. And I also have thickening of all the bones around my lower spinal canal which is causing severe stenosis. The stenosis means narrowing.
Do you happen to have sharp pains in your neck or down your arms? If so, it's probably due to all those bulging discs. I wouldnt know if it's that bad or not or if it will progress to worse. But I wouldnt wait around to find out if I were you.
Make sure you ask your doc exactly what it all means and if it is progressive or will worsen over time. [Removed]
