Chronic bk/leg pain: You're pretty young to have these. What is your level of activity? Very high or very low. What is your weight? If too high, your weight can be the cause for your back and leg pains. If your weight is normal, then the MRI should give you an idea regarding back disc herniation. You may consider seeing your primary care doctor regarding an ortho or neuro consult.
