Around four weeks ago, I drove for three hours. I had pain in my abdomen that had spread to my spine. I had to crawl everywhere for one week as I could not walk. The pain has reduced, but still I am uncomfortable. I have been advised by my doctor not to work until I consult a specialist as it could be serious. I had back pain in the past, but never for this long period of time. My current medications are Ibuprofen and Paracetamol with Codeine. I hope you can help me with my MRI report. The comment at the end of my MRI lumbar spine says: Moderate central stenosis with indentation of anterior cord at T11-T12, possibly with an area of cord edema or myelomalacia. I have been referred to a neurosurgeon. Could you please clarify the results and my condition? Is there anything serious?
