Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
It seems you have a disc prolapse with nerve root compression. An MRI scan can only detect the exact extent of injury you have suffered,. In cases of a severe problem. surgical treatment or epidural steroid injections are recommended.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
