MRI
Recently has a MRI. I have been having severe pain in back, hips,upper and lower legs and tingling in feet.. Pain worse when laying down.  I have been dealing with this since October with no let up in pain.
MRI says
L2-L3 and L3-L4 demonstrates mild diffuse disc bluges., Mild spinal stenosis and moderate left foraminal narrowing are present at L3-L4.

L4-L5 a large midline disc heriation is present at the L4-L5 level, producing severe spinal stenosis.

What are the normal treatment for these conditions. So ready for some pain relief. My life has been on hold since October.

Thanks
Sheryl

Hey Sheryl!

The MRI describes disc bulges at lower spinal levels causing mild-moderate narrowing of the spinal canal and the spaces that carry the spinal nerves at L3/L4 and severe spinal stenosis as L4/L5. While mild-moderate cases may be managed conservatively; severe ones may require a surgical fixation. I would suggest discussing the situation and the management plan in detail with your treating doctor.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
