First, the mild loss: Of lumbar lordosis is a finding, not a diagnosis.

Yes: While it can cause it from a few things that are more serious and would be causing excessive pain, the main cause of this is from muscle spasms between vertebral structures. As those muscles spasm, they tighten, pulling the lumbar vertebra tight and decreasing the curvature. Discuss with your physician the right type of therapy or intervention for you personally. ...Read more

My X-ray report says 'loss of lumbar lordosis with mild angular focal kyphosis. I'm just20 year old.Will this be chronic and affect rest of my life?

Can't predict: If you have not had any major trauma (such as a bad car accident) to cause the x-ray findings, then you may just have some mild early disc degeneration. The majority of patients with mild early disc degeneration will do fine with simple conservative treatment and will not have chronic pain. I would recommend further discussion with your physician. ...Read more

I got serve back pain , the report says that there is a reduced disc space between l5-s1 level and loss of lumbar lordosis due to back muscle spasm?

May be better choice: Taking narcotics for acute pain is not "bad". There may be better choices, though. 2 vicodins contains up to 1000 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) so you have to be careful not to exceed 3000 mg per day for nl adult size. It also has hydrocodone which is possibly addicting. Try regular tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen. You may also benefit from a Medrol dose pack. Talk to your doctor who knows your history and your exam. ...Read more
