CT Scan: I would suggest a CT scan of the lumbar back. Your symptoms are still suggestive of an L4 radiculopathy. MRI is better at seeing muscles not nerves. Ask the radiologist to suggest the best imaging test. Some CT scans use dye some do not. Your regular doctor can order the CT based on the radiologists input. An Orthopedic spine specialist could offer better diagnostic/imaging next steps as well. ...Read more

Keep looking: Definitely not a normal complaint and diagnosis must be made. If your MRI of your lumbar spine is normal, it may be coming from your brain, your cervical, or your thoracic spine. It can be from a structural abnormality, which can be seen on an MRI, but it can also be caused by nonstructiral, neurological conditions as well. Your neurologist needs to take the ball and run with it or second opin ...Read more

MRI lumbar spine for pain result said Small paraspinal soft tissue. What does that mean? Thoracic said normal paraspinal soft tissue.
Might be an error.: Sometimes, radiology reports have typographical errors in them. "Small paraspinal soft tissue" doesn't make a lot of medical sense, unless your muscles are small because you have small stature or not much muscle mass. It's possible that the report is missing a word or phrase describing some "small" finding. If you would like a second opinion on the MRI, let me know. ...Read more

MRI of lumbar spine showed regions of focal fatty replacement and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine and chronic wedge deformities. Should I worry?
Not too much: The area of fatty replacements and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine are not significant, and pose no future problem for you. However, the chronic wedge deformities may be due to prior trauma with injury to the vertebral bodies, or possible osteopenic compression fractures. Discuss with you doctor about possibly osteoporosis or other bone abnormality, and how to limit further injury. ...Read more

U hav lots t do: Pain management is useful if it helps you to move normally while you heal. If you smoke, you must stop. What ever type of activity/lifestyle produces the damage to your back must be modified. Physical therapy for a core strengthening, yoga type stretching home exercise program that incorporates proper breathing and body awareness is the pathway that I have seen the most success. Patience! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

To properly evaluate the colon, ask your doctor to inform you on what study is needed to properly visualize the colon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
