Yes, this related to prior post. I'm 35 years old. My doc says stenosis and bilateral spondylosis. here are the reports: MRI: Bilateral pars interarticularis defects at L5; mild degenerative changes at L5-S1 with disc dessication and mild disc bulge. Associated mild facet and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy contribute to mild bilateral neural foraminal narrowing, with exiting nerve roots abutting the bulging disc bilaterally, right greater than left; at L4-L5 minimal disc bulge. -- XRAY: bilateral L5 pars spondylolysis; minimal anterolishtesis at L5-S1 on flexion. -- Also, the PT with ice & elec. stimulation on lumbar seemed to help some. -- I should add, the symptoms change and at times are better.
