Basically, your cervical and lumbar spine are straightening; the curves in the spine help with support, scoliosis with your lumbar spine (abnormal horizonal curvation) and the sacralization of L5 is a congenital defect you were born with (L5 fuses with S1).  You will have to have this monitored.  If it is not a problem now I am sure it will be later.  I am guessing it is causing problems now since you had an xray.  Are you seeing a spine specialist or an orthopedic specialist?
