I'm new here and wonder if anyone can help. To cut a long story short I have been suffering with back pain for some time. A while ago I was sent for full Mri. When I went to G.p for results he told me everything had come back clear and was absolutely fine. This was some time ago and have recently hurt my back while moving a sofa. It got me thinking about my previous Mri and got my results out. I am confused by the wording as it says " Not significant" Does anyone know if this means there was some found but not enough to cause worry. Sorry If this is confusing!!! I am a healthcare asst and have worked in current job for 20 years. It is very physical and every day id full of manual handling. Although I have pain in many areas my most current problem is low back pain, pain down right leg, ankle upper and underneath foot ant big toe. I also have tingling in lower back and burning stinging feeling. Walking for more than 5 minutes makes right leg feel dead although I don't loose any strength.
The report says...
No significant spinal or foraminal stenosis is seen.
No significant disc protusion seen.
Bulging of cervical, dorsal and L5'S1 disc noted.
No significant facet joint osteoarthrosis is seen.
I think the wording "no significant" is confusing me!
As I said this mri was taken a while ago.
Due to new problems I have had another Mri and am awaiting results for that.
Soryy for such a long winded story. Any advice would be gratefully accepted
Many Thanks, Anna
