MRI: Part Lumbarization,Trans L5-S1, Bulging

I'm under the care of a MS dr for leg weakness, constant pins and needles, severe burning sensations, falling, foot drop, spastic legs, bladder frequency, heat intolerance, vertigo, all over muscle jerking, etc...

He asked me to give him all my MRI's, so I picked up this one from March 2007 and found this report. My orthopedic dr and old neuro said there was nothing wrong with my back. I'm really confused, because this report seems to tell another story. Could this be causing my MS like symptoms?

The numbering is based on the lateral T2 sequence. I believe there is a
transitional vertebra at L5-S1 with partial lumbarization of S1.

There are mild bulging discs seen at multiple levels not causing any
significant spinal canal, lateral recess or neural foramina encroachment.
No focal herniated discs are seen. Bony structures show no acute marrow
edema, significant masses or edema. The conus medullaris ends at an
appropriate location. The neural foramen are well maintained.

IMPRESSION:

1.I BELIEVE THERE IS A TRANSITIONAL VERTEBRA AT L5-S1.
2.MINIMALLY BULGING DISC NOT CAUSING ANY SIGNIFICANT NEURAL COMPROMISE.
*** Final Report ***

Thank you for reading this mess!
