Hi, All,
As many of you know, I had ACDF C5-6 one year ago. I have had lumbar pain for a long time (like a year) and sciatica. I just got my MRI results and am kind of upset that nothing "more" showed, because now I feel a little crazy.

L2-3 Mild Facet Hypertrophy
L3-4 Mild to moderate Facet Hypertrophy
L4-5 Mild to moderate Facet Athrosis
L5-S1 Mild to moderate Facet Hypertrophy
No Focal Disc Herniation or Stenosis.

Essentially Normal study, mild to moderate facet hypertrophy

That's it. I am kind of shocked, considering I had severe spinal cord compression a year ago in my cervical area. I know what pain is like. How could my MRI be "essentially normal"? Any advice would be great.

PS - I am going to PT 2x/wk and taking Neurontin 300mg/day.

Thanks so much,
