had an mri done a few days ago and got the results today. am off work right now and wanted to know if i'm actually hurt or its just a sprain before i go to the dr. again

here's what it says.

findings:


L4-L5: SLIGHT LOSS OF DISC HEIGHT IS NOTED. THERE IS A CENTRAL TO RIGHT-SIDED DISC PROTRUSION PRESENT MEASURING 2 TO 3 MM IN MAXIMUM EXTENT. THIS PROCESS SLIGHTLY NARROWS THE RIGHT NEURAL FORAMINAL RECESS. THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT CENTRAL STENOSIS SUSPECTED. THE L4 NERVE ROOTS APPEAR TO EXIT WITHOUT IMPINGEMENT. SLIGHT IMPINGEMENT ON THE DESCENDING RIGHT L5 ROOT MAY BE PRESENT.

all the other verterbra say normal.

any ideas? thanks

I am not a Doctor in any way shape or form but i've read so many reports that i believe i know what they are saying. I also know how important it is to be prepared to ask the right questions about pain and it's treatment
I wish Your report was mine however You do have a pinched nerve, physical therapy, massage, perhaps at the worst pain shots. sorry i can't give you more but you can tear the report apart by doing online researching on each item the report stated. best of luck and beware of painkillers / narcotics and surgery.Tom
