[QUOTE=missygt;3226077]Here is what my MRI reports say.

* RIGHT PARACENTRAL DISC EXTRUSION AT t 7/8 WITH INFERIOR EXTENSION EXTENSION BY 5mm, THERE IS MASS EFFECT ON THE THECAL SAC.


* L 5/S1 SMALL CENTRAL DISC PROTUSION, ADDITIONALLY THERE IS DIFFUSE DISC BULGE.

* DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE AT T 12/L1 AND L2/3[/QUOTE]

A portion of a disc in the mid/upper back (T7-8) has ruptured and pushed into the spinal canal. It is pressing on the lining of that canal (the mass effect they refer to).
There is a smaller rupture affecting the lower back (L5-S1) and some wear and tear type changes at a couple of other levels.
The significance of all this depends on the symptoms you're experiencing and the findings of the docs exam. Good Luck...
