back pain

I recently had an MRi done and got my results. At my L3-L4 thers is a laterally bulging disc and facet DJD. At my L4-L5 there is a broad based disc bulge and facet joint DJD. At my L5-S1 thers is mild disc bulge and facet joint with mild right formanial stenosis. Could my pregnancy with twins made this condition worse?

Hi!
Well, to some extent yes, pregnancy with twins puts a lot of strain in lower back. Maintaining a good posture goes a long way in overcoming this type of pain. You can wear a lumbar belt or arthrosis to give support to the back muscles while you are working. Physiotherapy should work to strengthen the back muscles.  Surgery may be the only option at times. Please discuss with your treating doctor. Take care!
