Hi. I was wondering if any one could explain my mri scan results. I've been housebound for over year due to severe pain in my neck, thoracic , & lower spine . Also both knees are affected. Things are progressively getting worse to the point where I'm in so much pain can't sleep more than 2-3 hours at a time . I have difficulty walking 2-3 meters & so I am confined to one room. I am female , 48 yrs old.
My blood results came back as normal.
MY GP relayed my mri results to me over the phone & only after googling the word haemangioma I realised that it's a benign bone tumour. Could someone please help to explain my results?
MRI Spine Cervical
Slightly reduced lordosis despite position. Minute marginal osteophytes. Incidental schmorl's nodule involving inferior L1 end plate. Early lower lumbar spine facet joint arthrosis.
Normal lumbar discs. Central spinal canal, lateral recesses and exit foramina remain spacious. Normal conus terminalis.
Normal vertebral alignment . Incidental small C6 haemangioma. Small areas of degenerative bone marrrow signal changes at T5 level.
Normal facet joints. Normal cervical discs. central spinal canal, and nerve root canals remain spacious. Normal appearance of cervical spinal cord and CCJ.
I have intense pain in the discs listed with problems. I'm mainly concerned about the bone tumour & the schmorl's nodule. Should my haemangioma be monitored. I haven't been told anything at all about this.
I'd be very gratetful to get an opinion on this.
