Disk protustion
I had 2 MRIs recently due to pain in neck & shoulders radiating down arm.  And pain in lower back radiating down leg. Cervica MRI Impression: Cervical spondylosis most pronounced at the C6-C7 level where thee is a central/left paracentral disk protrusion.  This extends into the left neural formaina and causes asymmetric left-sided neural foraminal narrowing.  Moderate circumferential spinal canal stenosis.
Lumbar MRI Impression: Central disk protrusion at the L4-L5 level with effacement of the thecal sac.  Bilateral facet joint degenerative changes. Circumferential spinal can stenosis.  Facet joint hypertrophy involving the lower lumbar spine.
What does this all mean?  I also have lupus which is in remission.  And fibromyalgia which is very active.  I get sacrialiac joint injections every 2 months.  And I take numeous medications including Gabapentin.  

Thank you,  Terry
