What is the treatment of lumbosacral neuritis/radiculitis?

See below

Neuritis
It depends on the nature of the condition. MRI of the LS spine and EMG might be helpful for determination of the severety of the process. Based on the results treatment might include non steroidal OTC medications, physical therapy, pain killers or consultation with pain management or spine specialist. However best solution is to see your doctor for advice.

Definition of lumbosacral neuritis?

See below

Neuritis
Neuritis means inflammation of a nerve, but we would not usually describe lumbosacral nerve problems by that term. MIght instead use radiculitis or radiculopathy. Not sure of what context this was introduced, but perhaps this refers to pain radiating from your spine down a leg. If occurring after back surgery, perhaps post-op scarring or arachnoiditis.

I was already diagnosed cervical spondylosis and radiculitis, lumbosacral radiculitis, and LJD what are my outcomes for the futu MORE INFORMATION ON MY CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS::::will cervical spondylosis and radiculitis, lumbosacral radiculitis, and lumbar

Hi, sorry

Hi, sorry to hear about your problems. First of all, try not to worry. Yes, paralysis is possible with cervical spondylolysis, but it is rare and usually does not occur overnight. Having said that, it is difficult to advise based on the histroy alone. Physical examination and MRI report would be needed to get a better picture of your problem. The pain does not always correlate with the findings. In other words, many people have severe pain and little pathology or a lot of pathology and mild pain. It sounds like your pain is not acute but rather chronic. Medications do tend to stop working over time and sometimes they need to be changed or replaced by others to control pain. Increased pain alone does not indicate that something terrible is going on. Watch for weakness in the arms or legs, changes in your bowel/bladder function, and , if you need to, get a second opinion. Good luck

what is lumbar hmnp protrusion with sciatica and radiculitis?

Pinched nerve

Low_back_pain
Discs between vertebrae should be viewed as little cushions, and if the basket border gets damaged, the nucleus pulpous within can protrude or rupture and press on nearby nerves causing radiating pain to go down the leg. The pain can be termed sciatica, but radiculopathy implies nerve compression at root level close to the spinal cord.

I was Dx w/ Lumbar Spondylolysis, bilateral nerve root impingement and radiculitis w/ L5 being slipped forward. Surgery or long-term pain management?

Surgery

Pain_management
Sometimes it solves with pain control, pain procedures (epidurals w/local anesthetic and steroids). After reducing the inflammation the disk if it is intact could slip backwards in place. The spondilosis is a chronic condition similar to the osteoarthritis that can not be cured like the disk herniation.I think you meant spondylolisthesis. Surgery can be efficient but also can have complications.
