Ask a Neurologist and Get an Answer ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
an MRI scan has usually dozens of images. that is one saginal image of your lumbar spine with T2 weighted sequence which shows your CSF fluid as white.
the image of your lower back is normal in that slice.
how old are you?
why did you get this MRI scan?
no, I don't see disk buldges in any of those images
it sounds like you are having lower back pain?
your symptoms are not showing up on the MRI scan images you are showing me.
sometimes it can take months and years of repeative stretching and flexing to help break up scar tissue from prior injuries and increase mobility
I would start to do some yoga. yoga is very good at helping with increasing range of motion and improving flexiblity and strength and can help break up scar tissue that you can't even seen on MRI scan
no, the radiologist would not be wrong in the reading of the MRI scan.
are you willing to try yoga?
I'm not sure what bulges you are talking about
you have not included images which show that.
Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Well there are no apparent disc bulges in any of the images you shared. Its however possible that a small fragment / fragments that broke off from one of the vertebra is compressing one of the nerve roots in the region . This can cause pain . There is no other gross abnormality there. You will feel better with medications that decrease nerve pain sensitivity e.g pregabalin or gabapentin in addition to simple analgesics like ibuprofen.
As mentioned by the previous expert back exercises / yoga would definitely help improve your symptoms. You can see the following links for that;
hope it answered your query.
