Hello all, just hoping to get some answers since my next Doctors appts. are so far away and I need to make more sense of what is going on. My symptoms are loss of sensation and numbness, tingling in my right leg only. Under my thigh has random spots of incredible pain as well as my ankle, calf, and buttocks/lower back. Urinating is always an emergency and I've been needing a cane to get myself anywhere. I'm 27. Here are my results.
Mild kyphosis. Vertebral body heights are maintained. Mild
multilevel disc space narrowing and end plate Schmorl's nodes. Bone
marrow signal and thoracic spinal cord appear unremarkable.
Multilevel disc protrusions/extrusions involving the mid to lower
thoracic spine. Mild central canal narrowing at T6-7, T8-9 and
T9-T10. No significant neural foraminal narrowing.
Multilevel degenerative disc disease with mild central canal
narrowing as described.
L2-3: 3 mm left paracentric disc bulge, indenting upon the ventral
sac. This, in conjunction with facet and ligamentous hypertrophy
results in mild canal stenosis and mild narrowing of the neural
L3-4: There is mild canal stenosis with mild narrowing of the neural
foramens, attributed mainly to facet hypertrophy.
L4-5: 3 mm central disc bulge, which in conjunction with facet and
ligamentous hypertrophy results in moderate canal stenosis and
moderate narrowing of the neural foramens.
L5-S1: 5 mm right paracentric disc bulge, indenting upon the ventral
sac, and causing mass effect on the right-sided S1 nerve root, but
it is within the spinal canal. There is no canal stenosis at this
level. There is moderate narrowing of both neural foramens.
Degenerative changes as described. The most prominent disease is at
L4-5 and L5-S1.
