Welcome at HCM.

I have read your complete question.It looks from your details that yoou are having subtle disc changes IN MRI at different levels.The good thing is that at any level you are not having compression of nerve or spinal canal stenosis.

At present you should do exercises for stregthening of spine.You may view that at following link-

Hope this will help you.

With best wishes.
