Neurologist 's  Response

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your complaints as well as MRI spine findings.

There is no need to worry about the MRI report. These are minor abnormalities and would respond to medical treatment. You would benefit from pregabalin capsules. In addition, you should also go for physiotherapy sessions.

You should consult a neurologist for opinion.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
Best wishes,
