Here are the results:
2005 Lumbar MRI:The lumbar lordosis is normal. There is no loss of vertebral body height. The bony structure suggest a slight heterogeneous signal intensity consistent with a smoking history (I have NEVER smoked). There is slight loss of intervertebral disc space and loss of T2W signal intensity at the L4-5 level, consistent with early degenerative changes. The neural canal is patent. The conus medullaris terminates normally at the L1-2 level.
L2-3: normal
L3-4 normal
L4-5 minimal disc protrusion effacing the subarachnoid space. The exiting and traversing nerve roots are normal
L5-S1 Normal
Impression: Degenerative Disc changes at the L4-5 disc level without focal abnormalities.

2007 Cervical MRI:Findings: There is mild straightening of the cervical lordosis, which could be secondary to spasm. There is no evidence of significant degenerative change or fracture.

2012 Lumbar MRI:
Vertebral heights are maintained in the lumbar spine without evidence of malalighment with conus ending at L1. In T12-L1, L1-L2, L2-L3 and L3-L4 there is no evidence of disc herniation, spinal stenosis or neural foramina narrowing. At L4-L5, there is mild disc space narrowing and asymmetric disc protrusion in the left paracentral and lateral regions without evidence of central spinal stenosis, although there is some mild narrowing of the left neural foramen. Right neural foramen is patent.
At L5-S1 there is again disc space narrowing and mild broad-based disc protrusion, again without central spinal stenosis. There is minimal narrowing of the neural foramina bilaterally at this level.
Impression: Degenerative Changes in the lower lumbar spine with findings more significatnt at L4-L5 where there is a focal disc protrusion which is mild in the left paracentral and lateral regions leading to mild narrowing of the left neural foramen. There is also generalized disc protrusion at L5-S1 leading to minimal narrowing of the neural foramina bilaterally. Clincal correlation recommended.

2012 Thoracic Spine:Findings: There is a 0.6 cm hemangioma in the T10 vertebral body. The vertebral marrow signal is otherwise normal. The thoracic discs are normal. There is no abnormal signal in the thoracic cord. There is no central canal stenosis. The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level looks normal.

2012 Xray of cervical spine and chest:
Findings on chest xray: Two standard views of the chest demonstrate the lungs are adequately inflated. No evidence of pneumothorax, pleural effusion, or concerning focal airspace opacity. The cardiac silhouette is normal size. The pulmonary vasculature is normal course and caliber. Mild degenerative changes are noted at the thoracic vertebral column. There is ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament over more than four contiguous thoracic vertebral bodies.
Impression:1. No evidence of acute cardiopulmonary disease. 2. Diffuse
idiopatheic skeletal hyperostosis.
Findings on cervical x-ray: AP, lateral, as well as right and left oblique views of the cervical spine to also include an odontoid view demonstrates normal bony mineralization. There is mild straightening of the cervical column on the lateral view, which may be secondary to muscle spasm versus patient positioning. Vertebral body heights are maintained. Mild disk height loss with mild to moderate degenerative endplate changes are noted at C5-C6. The visualized neural foramina appear patent. No evidence of fracture or concerning sublaxation.

So....any thoughts?? HELP PLEASE.
