How do I ease my back pain I have had an MRI scan which shows scarring, compression on my spine and I am on endone, when I don't take this my back ach?
See a back surgeon: Find a good back doctor you can trust, either an orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon, who specializes in backs. Sounds like you've had the work up. The last thing I'd recommend is a narcotic except for immediate post surgical pain. You'll get hooked on those things and breaking yourself of that habit will be worse than the back pain! Exercise to strengthen your back muscles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an MRI scan of my back n they told me tht I have a joint spine prob so what type of prob is ths?is ths serus?n they will put 4injections a day.
Painful, not serious: First possibility: the joint referred to is an intervertebral disc. This is not as likely as this would usually require only one injection. The second possibility is the zygapophysial (or "facet") joints. If the L4-L5 & L5-S1 facet joints appear arthritic on imaging, both levels may be injected, sometimes bilaterally, accounting for four injections. The underlying problem? Arthritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Back pain after preg: Lumbar pain after pregnancy is common. As many as 80% will have pain, but only about 20% have persistent symptoms. Why?

Varies: There are multiple potential causes for signal changes with in the spinal cord. It can even be artifact and so you would want to make sure you had a good quality, high resolution Mri with contrast to ensure the finding is even real. Followup with a neurologist for a detailed exam and to discuss the Mri findings would be recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I went in to get an MRI scan on my spine and I was scared. The lady had me try it for about 40 second before I had them take me out. Now I remember I had surgical staples for a cut on my scalp years ago. I never had them taken out should i be worried?
Go to your doctor: As far as your MRI is concerned, it's probably fine. The concerns with MRI are certain metals that can be moved due to the magnetic force. Many metals used into the medical field aren't made of those types of metal. I'm more concerned w/possibility of surgical staples being in place for a year. Maybe they used suture which your body absorbed. I recommend you see your doctor to get this sorted out ...Read more
