*Consumer Comment: must of been dr shopping
They pretty much left me for dead and I am asking myself why is this happening to me? Now, I realize people take medication of chronic pain like myself and many others, and some who take for a party or something But I have no clue what to do, and not to mention that I have a 15 year old who told me ,MOM, I heard that you can get sick if u stop your medication like that..
I have a brilliant 15 yr old son who is my life. So as a single mom, he knows everything about me and vice-versa. So now I have that to worry about. GREAT. Fantastic!! I will be sick and have this as well and I grabbed my second MRI report ( 10/30/2007) to correctly spell these issues that ruin my life:
Technique: SAgital T2, T1, T1 fat saturated axial T1 and T2 sequences throught the lumbar performed.
Sagital images show multilevel degenerative disc disease. There is more severe disease at L5-S1, with disc height loss, and edematous end plate changes at L5-S1 in addition to about 7mm of retrolithesis of L5 on S1. Other leverl show focal disc buldges with disc desiccation, and small central protrusions with high intensity zones at L2-3 and L3-4. THe conus is at level T12/L1 and is normal in appearance. No other significant marrow abnormalties are identified ( OH WOW , that is great news right there.. that last sentence .)
At L 1-2, there is a small central protrusion. There is no significant neural foraminal or spinal stenosis.
At L2-3, there is a broad- based disc buldge without neural foraminal or central stenosis. There is central high intensity zone, consistant with focal annular tear.
At L3-4, there is a broad-based disc buldge and focal posterior high intensity zone consistent with annular tearing. There is mild facet DJD. There is no significant neural foraminal or central stenosis.
At L4-5 there is a moderate broad-based disc buldge and mild to moderate facet hypertrophy and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy. No significant neural foraminal or central stenosis is visualized.
At L5-S1, there is moderate-to-severe bilateral facet DJD. Retrolisthesis and facet DJD narrow the bilateral lateral recesses and neural foramina. This could cause affect upon the ilateral L5 nerve roots and bilateral descending S1 nerve root, and could account for radiculopathy in these distributions if present clinically.
MULTILEVEL DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE. MOST SIGNIFICANT FINDING IS AT L5-S1 WITH DEGENERATIVE RETROLISTHESIS, DISC HEIGHT LOSS AND DEGENERATIVE END PLATE CHANGES WITH RETROLETHESIS AND FACET DJD PRODUCING MODERATE BILATERAL NEURAL FORAMINAL AND LATERAL RECESS NARROWING, AND COULD ACCOUNT FOR BILATERAL L5 AND S1 RADICULOPATHIES IF THEY ARE PRESENT CLINICALLY.
I rest my case.
