MRI results, ouch

Howdy all,

New to the board but no stranger to pain. I've been experiencing muscle spasms and back pains for around 8 years now and just recently a doctor finally took the time to examine me. (typical military treatment of back pain is "take a motrin, drink water, walk it off soldier...) She schedule some x-rays and MRI's and as soon as the results came back, she scheduled me to see a Neural Surgeon for further guidance of the pain/problem.

I am however not exactly a brain surgeon and figured since a large majority of this board has had / is experiencing pains similar to mine...that maybe you could lend some insight to my readings and images...

Any insight is greatly appreciated

***EDIT***
Have been going to chiropractors and physical therapists for years. Problem slighly gets better but any simple action like sneezing can set off a muscle spasm or lock up my joints...
