LUMBAR IMPRESSION: CHRONIC DEGENERATIVE CHANGES PARTICULARY AT 5-1 WITH SOME LEFT SIDED FORAMINAL NARROWING BUT NERVE ROOTS EXIT WITHOUT CONTACT OR DISTORTION. MILD FACET ARTHROPATHY AT 4-5 AND 5-1. THE PATIENT ALSO HAS GENERALIZED LEFT SIDED CONVEX SCOLIOSIS. CERVICAL: CHRONIC DEGENERATIVE CHANGES 4-5,5-6 AND 6-7 WITH FORAMINAL NARROWING. NO CENTRAL STENOSIS. NO PROTRUSION OR HERNIATION. I HAVE HAD A SEVERE PAIN IN MY BUTT FOR 10 YRS AND NOW IT GOES ALL THE WAY TO MY TOES ,JUST ON MY LEFT SIDE! THE PAST FEW MONTHS MY NECK HURTS BAD AND MY RIGHT ARM BUT I JUST FOUND OUT I HAVE TRIGGER FINGER SO MIGHT BE SOME OF MY ARM PAIN. 4 MORE WEEKS TILL I SEE DR. DO YOU KNOW WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS? THANK YOU!!

DEAR DOT, IT MEANS THAT YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE PAIN. CRAZY HUH? IT SEEMS YOUR NERVES ARE NOT HITTING ANYTHING. ALTHOUGH NARROWING WITH DDD (DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE) ARTHRITIS IF NOT PRESENT WILL FORM, TO MAKE UP WHAT NATURE HAS TAKEN AWAY. NORMAL. DON'T LET THE DOCTORS TELL YOU YOU'RE ALRIGHT AND SHOULDN'T HAVE PAIN. INSIST ON PAIN MEDS, ANTI-INFLAMATORIES, AND IF NEEDED RELAXANTS. DON'T GET DISCOURAGED, ANTI-DEPRESSANTS WORK ALSO. TRY PT AND OT, B4 ANYTHING ELSE. HOPE I HELPED A LITTLE BIT.
