Now it is time for you to get an MRI of Lumbosacral spine done, since the chances that you are suffering from prolaplse of intervertebral disc.
Send the MRI report to me at to suggest you further line of treatment

Hi Dr Soni
I had my lumbosacral xray and it only shows straightening of the lumbar curvature.
No sign of prolapse of the intervertebral disc (is this slip disc?)
I will schedule my MRI as well.
It can be lumbar canal stenosis as well.
Please comment
