Mid and Low back pain

I had a T9 hairline fracture but since then I found out that I had scherumens disease and low back had degenerating disks. Doctors have told me that usually scherumens disease is found in kids not adults and it can't be that. I have been in pain for almost 9 yrs pain radiates to the rib cage, feels like someone is grinding the knife in the chest. Low back pain goes to left leg and hips and groin area and MRI shows

Findings:

L2-3 minimal Bulging disc. No central Forminal Stenosis

L3-4 Mildly Bulging disc effaces ventral thecal sac without central stenosis. patent neural foramina

L4-5 Mild cental stenosis resulting from diffusely bulging disc and hypertrpohy of ligamentum flavum. Mild Facet Arthropathy

L5-S1 Broad Based central /left paracentral protusion extends into epidural fat.

Thoracic Spine:

Evaluation of individual level demonstartes tiny protrusions at T5-6, T6-7, T8-9. Small Posterior osteophytes and bulging disc are present at T10-11, T11-12, T12-L1.


Impression

Minimal multifactorial central stenosis at L4-5
Small Central / Left Paracentral L5-S1 Protrusion
Thracic spine mild multilevel spondylosis with small protusions without central or formaninal stenosis.


Anyone can explain all this I will really appreacite it.
