i just had a xray on lumber spine. there is a transitional lumbar vertebra. spondylotic changees present at L4/5 and between L5 and the transitional vertebral body. the endplates appear intact with no evidence of vertebral body collapse.please could tell in in normal terms won,t this means as i don,t understand and will it just go away many thanks.
im no dr but my guess is you need some treatment either conservative like physical therapy and or injections. if that doesnt work you may need surgical intervention. you need to see an orthopedic or neuro surgeon spine specialist. he/she will probably order an mri. the surgeon will compare your symptoms to the test to determine diagnosis and treatment plan. i think doing nothing will just make it worse. you have arthritic changes that have created bone spurs that are rubbing on the spinal nerves. best of luck to you in getting it fixed.....pete
