I have recently been given my MRI and Bone Scan results, I am looking for some feedback on what this means. I have been told I need to see a nuerologists next because I have been told the results are not causing my pain.

Any help would be appreciated. Here are the results:
x-rays:
Mild to Moderate bilateral degenerative facet arthropathy in lower lumbar spine.

Bone Scan:
Mild biconvex thoracic scoliosis

MRI:

Minimal multilevel degenerative changes as described.
At L3-4 there is a mild diffurse disc bulge with no canal stenosis
At L4-5 there is a small central disc protrusion/bulge with an associated annular tear resulting in minimal bilarteral neural foramen narrowing but no canal stenosis.
At L5-S1 there is a small diffuse central disc bulge resulting in minimal bilateral inferior nueural foramen norrowing but no canal compromise.

All this has been found but they say it is not causing my pain, how is this possible. I have pain shooting down the back and front of my left leg after to much activity. I have pain in my hips and pretty much consent lower back pain.
