Severe Pain
An_248072 posted:
Have had severe lower back/hip pain for 6 months. Recent MRI of lumbar showed small cyst in right lower pole of kidney centrally located. Should I see a doctor for this? Doctor never mentioned this in follow up visit for MRI results. Could this be the source of lower back, both hips & buttock pain along with burning sensation & muscle spasms. MRI also showed disc bulge & facet arthropathy in L1-L2, L2-L3, L3-L4, L4-L5, L5-S1. Also Heterogeneous marrow replacing lesions in posterior aspect of L1 & T1 which have fair amount of T1 hyperintensity and are probable hemangioma. Smaller one is seen at T11, L2 & L4. Pain meds, muscle relaxers, volataren gel take the pain from a 10 to 8 for only a couple of hours. Doctor said surgery will only make it worst. Help; I can't take the pain for much longer!
