Neurologist 's  Response

Thanks for posting this question in HCM

I don't know if there are clinical signs of any nerve roor compression or not. I also don't know your age . If you have pain related to nerve root compression may improve with medicines like Gabapentine, pregabaline, Duloxitine etc.

You basically need a detailed clinical evaluation by a neurologist who will determine if you have any deficits or not. If there are deficits and symptoms are still persisting, surgical treatment will be another option. If there are no complaints and MRI was done on routine basis, these findings are not of serious concern.

Please get examined by a local neurologist and in the mean time you can discuss with him regarding the medicines that i have suggested

Hope this helps
