Need information about Bertillotis syndrome

I would like to know what all you know about Bertillotis syndronm. I was diagnosed in 2010 after suffering with severe back pain and nerve pain down my leg. It took me years to get anyone to believe me about how much pain I was in until I found the right doctor who gave me another MRI and X-rays. He, himself told me that at first he didn't even know what he was looking at and had to look it up.

You may submit the report of MRI X ray. If your doc. has told you so,then probably he might suggest further treatment.
If indeed it is bertilottis, then you may require some spinal fusion surgery ( will depend on MRI report for level of transistional vertebra)
