Re: Hi Newbie Can someone help with MRI report
Its only my 3 years of personal pain and education and 2 surgeries about my spine that I answer your question. I am not a dr.
First, from your MRI it doesn't read that bad where I would say oh yes, this could be why your leg hurts. It says osteophytes "ABUT" not indent. Abut means adjacent to or near. If it said indent or compress I might say it would be contributing. I am sure others will chime in here with stories.
If you follow the dermatomes for the cervical levels you most likely would have pain on your right arm, shoulder, blade, and forearm and into wrist and maybe a little hand with this MRI from my experience with problems at C4,5,6,7.
There must be more to the story here, why did they do a cervical MRI and not a Lumbar? What exactly is the pain in your leg and where? Do you have any other symptoms, i.e. headaches, numbness, tingling.... etc? Did you have any neurological signs in a physical exam?
If you post more maybe we can understand your situation more.
