I am a 26 year old female, one 3yr.old, the only meds that I'm on or been on is the Depo-Provera shot. I've been suffering with lower back pain since 2005. I went to the dr. they did a x-ray and gave me cortisone injections in my lower back. In my report from the dr. he mentioned that he sees the beginning spondylarthrosis at the level L4/5 and L5/S1 on both sides. He also mentioned that I have a 6-member lumbar spine.The final diagnosis was: chronic lumbalgia with suspected lumbar facet syndrome at L4 to S1 on both sides. This was on 2/6/08 in Europe at the ortho. clinic. I'm now back in the states, texas to be exact. I am still in pain in the same area and just wondering what exactly is my diagnosis saying is going on? Also what should I do now that I'm still in pain.:(
