Dr. Corenman I realize you are a busy person and have alot going on in your life but was wondering if you could take the time to view some images from a recent mri and tell me in your opinion if you saw any type of an issue or not.. your time and knowledge is appreciated and any information you had for me would be great!
You have to realize that images are only one of the foundations of diagnosis. Many patients can have significant findings on MRI and X-ray that are asymptomatic and should be left alone. A complete history, physical examination and review of all images needs to be completed before a differential diagnosis can be constructed.
Sorry Dr. that link above should definatly work.. I have been dealing with constant lower back pain for many years, which I relate to heavy lifting of lobster crates weighing 107+ pounds a piece and stacking them at times above my head. the pain comes and goes, and sometimes is so severe I am unable to get up out of bed without crawling on the floor, and pushing myself up a wall to stand. The pain has recently moved down the back of my right leg thru my butt.
