  1. Hello Dr. Wise,
    I was wondering if you could help me with understanding the report from my MRI. I have the report and I'm not seeing my Dr. for a week, just wanting to know! It says: L5-S1 Degenerative Disc Disease with central disc protrusion, with loss of T2 signal intensity, mildly impressing the thecal sac. There is no evidence of central or foraminal stenosis.
    Anything you can help with would be great. I had degenerative disc disease on my last MRI report from 2 years ago. No disc protrusion. I woke up one morning 2 weeks ago and it hurt so bad, i felt like i could not stand or sit back down. Hurts bad when I'm sitting or laying flat on my back. Also the pain goes for my lower back down all the way back down to the top of my left foot, and also feels like my left leg is going to give out at any given time. Frustrating because I'm only 25 years old and I have had to miss work for 2 weeks! Thanks so much.
