I am a 29 year old male. My height is 176 cm and weight is 77 kg. I have pain in my right buttock for the past seven days. I tried to push the bed with leg and this caused some injury in the lower spine. Please refer to MRI report that I have attached. My MRI opinion is as follows. MRI lumbo-sacral spine reveals early spondylotic changes are seen in the form of osteophytes and disc desiccation at multiple levels with minimal posterior disc bulge at L2-L3 level indenting the thecal sac without any significant neural compression. Broad based posterior disc bulge with mild postero-central disc protrusion at L3-L4 level and L4-L5 level indenting the thecal sac and bilateral descending L4 and L5 levels. Minimal posterior disc bulge with mild postero-central disc protrusion at L5-S1 level indenting the thecal sac and the bilateral descending S1 nerve. I am currently taking Flupirtine maleate capsule, Aceclofenac, Paracetamol tablets along with Omega-3 capsules. I have no problem passing urine or stool and pain in last one week is relieved by 50% but not fully. I am on complete bed rest. I have a family trip for five days of next week. Shall I join that or should I avoid it? Thank you.
