My Back

I had an MRI yesterday to help diagnose some numbness I've been feeling on the outside of my right leg.


Looks like one disc in particular has an issue. This T2 scan shows white for water content. Discs that are black have dehydrated and may indicate Degenerative Disc Disease. The disc above should be white with water like the one above it between L4 and L5.

The little piece sticking out may be a protrusion or an extrusion (I don't have a doctor's analysis yet), depending on whether it has herniated past my posterior longitudinal ligament.

I looked at ChiroGeek's MRI Tutorial to figure out this much. I have to talk to my doctor to find out the real deal.
