Kindly consider the fact you have asked the opinion on your mri alone without giving a clue about watyou are sufferi

Kindly consider posting back with your clinical illness in details like when did it started and what meds youv tried and you are currently on for me TO LOOK IN TO FURTHER MANAGEMENT of your condition.
Thank you
