What kind of pain are you having and where is it exactly?

Hi!   It looks like a herniated disc to me although it might just be a bad bulge.  I haven't seen enough of these to know.  LOL!!!  I love looking at them though.  It also seems to me like your spine is too straight, resulting in the sharp turn where the herniation is. Make sure you ask the doctor about that if he doesn't say anything.  Inform yourself before you see him so you can ask questions.  I would look on the internet to try and find some pictures of a healthy "normal" spine to compare yours too.  Good luck!!!!!
