After I sought a second opinion today... I am not making up this sciaticia pain that has me about bawling my midday.
At L5-SI High tensity zone in the posterior annulus 2.6-8 believed an annular tear with small midline disk herniation in the ventral epidural fat.
The medical doctor said my disk was broke /cracked, in lameman terms and the center of the disk part might be leaking out effecting the sciatic nerve. Is his take of it correct?
The L3-4 is mild left ligamentum flavum redundancy. Mimimal bilateral ligementum flavum redudancy L4-5 6.1
This he did not explain.
I get to go to a back specialist after Thanksgiving... just need to know what all this means, how serious is it, and what I should be doing to ease some of the sciatica pain and lower back pain without having to be on potent drugs... so I can work.
Thank you in advance for your help
