Intraosseous Hemangioma & Meningeal Cyst in Spine

I was involved in an auto accident, I was hit from behind by a truck.  I have back pain extending to the left side of my lumbar spine.  My doctor ordered an MRI. I just received the results, I have not spoken to him and I was hoping you can explain the following:

A intra-osseous hemangioma in the left aspect of the L1 verebral body is noted.  Also a periniural meningeal cyst is noted in the left T11-12 neural foramen.

Also noted is a diminished signal intensity in the regional bones, related to prominent hematopoietic marrow.

I am in alot of pain, more so if a sit or stand too long.  Could you please explain what a hemangioma and a meningeal cyst is and how it could have occured in the accident.  Is it something that will go away with time?  What is hematopoitic marrow?
