Hello,

I have been dealing with neuropathy from my knees down for the past two years. Last year this time I had two MRIs done, one of my head, the other of my lower back. This year at roughly the same point of time I had another round of MRIs done, one of my cervical spine and again of my lower back. I recently received my results and do not know what they mean.

IMPRESSION:
1. Grade 1 C3-4 retrolisthesis with disc osteophyte complex impinging on the right side of the cord. Mild to moderate narrowing of the left C3-4 neural foramina.
2. Disc osteophyte complex at C5-6 with slight cord impingement. Mild to moderate narrowing of the right C5-6 neural foramina. Severe narrowing of the left C5-6 neural foramina.
3. Disc osteophyte complexes at C6-7, C7-T1, and T1-2 without cord impingement. Mild narrowing of the right C6-7 and C7-T1 neural foramina.

IMPRESSION:
1. Grade 1 L1-2 retrolisthesis along with disc osteophyte complex with thecal sac impingement without significant change since December 23, 2016. Stable mild neural foraminal narrowing.
2. Disc osteophyte complex at L3-4 with thecal sac impingement, without significant change. Stable mild neural foraminal narrowing.
3. Disc osteophyte complex at L4-5 with thecal sac impingement, without significant change. Moderate to severe narrowing of the right L4-5 neural foramen has worsened since December 23, 2016. Mild to moderate left L4-5 neural foraminal narrowing is stable.
4. Stable disc osteophyte complex at L5-S1 with thecal sac impingement.

I'm on 1200mgs of Gabapentin and have been recently given a script to start Lyrica but am hesitant to start it after reading about possible undesirable side effects.

Thank you
