Hi, the xray reeds that there is abscence or scanty inter vertibral disc. But it can't read the complete details. You may have to take an M.R.I.for complete information.the kidney stone at ureterovasical junction can show such pain.
So i advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Avoid taking potato, other tubers, tomato, egg, chicken, and sea foods.
I don't encourage frequent lithotrypsies, have more water.
I to my patient with such symptoms prescribe aurvedic tablets, for desolving the stones but to be taken continuously. Thank you.
