understanding my MRI

I have had chronic back pain for more years than I can remember. I have done injections, chiropractic, massages and in the last 3 months it has gotten to a level the pain is 10 plus, every night when I go to bed I wake up in AGONY. I can't hardly turn because of the pain on the left lower back. When I get up it, at times takes 45 minutes to be able to walk. i can't hardly bend and wash when showering, and to be able to wipe myself is awful. I finally went to the doctor and had an MRI of my lumbar.

L1-2 UNREMARKABLE

L2-3 MILD BILATERAL FACET ARTHROPATHY WITHOUT STENOSIS

L3-4 BILATERAL FACET ARTHROPOTHY WITH SLIGHT MASS-EFFECT ON THE POSTEROLATERAL ASPECTS OF THE THECAL SAC MINIMAL CANAL STENOSIS NEURAL FORAMINA ARE PATENT

L4-5 MINIMAL BROAD-BASED DISC BULGE SUBTLE T2 SIGNAL HYPERINTENSITY POSTERIORLY LIKELY REPRESENTS A SMALL ANNULAR TEAR BILATERAL FACET ARTHROPOTHY AND LIGAMENT FLAVUM HYPEROPHY WITH MINIMAL CANAL STENOSIS NEURAL FORAMINS ARE PATENT

L5-S1 SMALL CENTRAL DISC PROTRUSION MEASURING 2 MM ANTERIOR TO POSTERIOR NO SIGNIFICANT STENOSIS
