[QUOTE=misty57;3967438]Last week I got up from the couch and had a really painful pull on the hip area of my back. Right side. As the night went on the pain got intense and had to go to the hospital because I could not take the pain anymore. The only somewhat relief I had was when I kept my knees bent. I could not keep my legs straight down. What I can't understand is why every time the pulling pain would hit I got nauseous and was about to throw up. When the pain subsided I was not nauseous anymore. Nobody in the hospital knew as to why this happened. I also had a cat scan done of the stomach down and everything looked fine. I wanted an MRI done but they said no one was there to do it due to the fact it was a sunday. Well why wasen't there someone there????? It's a hospital!! Just an excuse. No one wants to be bothered. Soooo they kept trying to send me home because there was no reason to keep me there but I refused. Until my pain was under control and I was able to get up and walk without wanting to throw up... I stayed!! But still the question is why did I feel like throwing up when the pain hit. I'm no stranger to this type of pain in my hip. I've had it for years. But never had it hit me so bad that I had to go to the hospital. Thanks Misty[/QUOTE] Hi, Well I had my MRI done and this is the results. Mild grade 1 spondylolisthesis of L5 on S1. Minimal spondylolisthesis of L3 0n L4. Multilevel degenerative disc disease , manifested by varying degrees of disc space narrowing and disc desiccation. At the L3-L4 level there is a diffuse broad-based disc bulge effacing the anterior aspect of the thecal sac. There is a left far lateral and foraminal component which mildly contacts to left exiting L3 nerve root. At the L4-L5 level, there is diffuse broad based disc bulge effacing the anterior aspect of the thecal sac contributing to mild central canal and moderate bilatera neural foraminal stenosis. At the L5-S1 level there is a grade 1 spondylolisthesis of L5 on S1 resulting in pseudobludge and a small central disc herniation. This contributes to mild central canal and bilateral neural foraminal stenosis without evidence of exiting L5 nerve root impingement. Fluid like abnormalities are seen within the spinal canal at level of S1-S2 suggestive of Tarlov cyst. Lots going on. This just scares the heck out of me. What can anybody make of all this. I will put off surgery as long as I can. My big question is what type of dr handles all these problems. Thanks Misty
